Loose threads that are dropped on one journey are picked up on another and woven into the delicate fabric we each wrap around ourselves. To hold the threads together - to tell a yarn - suggests that we are all weavers of a kind. University of Sydney students contributed their work to this new anthology, and in their unique ways, each writer has taken up a strand of human fibre and woven it into the resulting stories, poems and essays.

Elizabeth Webby is professor emerita of English at the University of Sydney.
