"Phoenix 2006 is the first issue of a new journal of Australian writing, initiated by and for candidates in the University of Sydney's Masters Program in Creative Writing. If this makes it sound like yet another journal of 'work of promise' the reader is in for a surprise: this is not promise, it is delivery. The University of Sydney is attracting some of the best new writers in the country, and this journal is more than just a showcase for the program itself. These writers are mature. Their voices, fresh as they are, are also strong and confident." - From the introduction by David Brooks, Director, M.A. program in Creative Writing
