The Joy of Co-Editing

Yasmin Tambiah and Joan Nestle, November 2013
Yasmin and I have worked for many months on our co-edited special issue, Lesbians and Exile, for Sinister Wisdom which got the go-ahead from head editor, Julie Enzer, just a few days ago.
La Professoressa snapped these post work session images, when we were both a little punchy. Yasmin and I managed to meet either in Melbourne or in a Sydney hotel lobby as we worked on the manuscript. Our friendship started many years ago in New York City when Yasmin won the Young Lesbian Writers Award from Astrae and I was the evening. Life brought us together once again here in Australia.
We want to thank all the writers who contributed to the project, Julie for being so welcoming to our proposal and our partners who watched and wondered. The issue will be out in October 2014.
