November Project Spotlight | Literature and Publishing

This month we’re celebrating the storytellers who choose pen and ink as their medium. Whether through poetry, children’s books, or monographs these artists are weaving tales that enrich our culture.

Sonntag Press is developing a monograph surveying the work of Egyptian-born, Melbourne-based visual artist Raafat Ishak. With exciting projects in the near future, including a permanent installation at Melbourne’s new Anzac Station, this monograph will be a timely addition to Ishak’s oeuvre.

Donations will be put towards printing and production, salaries and marketing and distribution.




Designed as a therapeutic resource for readers bereaved by suicide (ages 7+), ‘An Elephant’s Elegy’ chronicles the journey of Wonder the Whale and his sisters, Grace the Galah and Nevaeh the Nightingale, who go searching for their father’s soul, wanting to understand why Elysium the Elephant ‘chose’ to leave earth.

Donations will support printing and production, illustration critiques and art materials.




The ‘Flying Islands Pocket Poets Poetry Books Series’ makes poetry accessible through the annual publication and distribution of a series of low-cost poetry books. The books are published in a pocketbook hard copy and e-book formats, featuring both professional and emerging poets.

Donations go directly to publication and distribution costs.
