This edition of The Circular was guest-edited by none other than Yumna Kassab.
More about her: Yumna Kassab is a writer from Western Sydney. She studied medical science and neuroscience at university. Her first book of short stories, The House of Youssef, has been listed for prizes including the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, Queensland Literary Award, NSW Premier’s Literary Award and The Stella Prize. Her second book, Australiana, will be released next week by Ultimo Press.
We're pleased to announce that there will be more guest-edited issues in the months to come. And for those itching to curate an issue themselves: keep an eye out for an open call for guest-editor applicants next week!
