According to a recent poll, about half of those surveyed believe computers will be as effective as people in creating music, novels, movies and paintings in the next 50 years. Well, we don’t know about that, but we can tell you that 12 young editors and 20 young writers/illustrators can create a pretty awesome literary magazine RIGHT NOW. It’s called early harvest issue 4, and it’s all about … technology!

Commissioned and edited by a young editorial board (still in primary school!) and delivered to you by the advanced technology of the printing press, this magazine showcases stories for young readers by the people that know them the best: young writers. And maybe Shaun Tan but you can decide that yourself.

Find out if you’re a robot, cyborg, human, computer or R2D2, run in to your favourite video game character (a pixel monster) in a choose-your-own-adventure, escape from robo-cats and get a new perspective on the time-travelling properties of your school printer.

Featuring stories, poems, comics, illustrations and games by young writers from Altona Primary School, Deer Park North Primary School, Footscray Primary School, Kensington Primary School, North Melbourne Primary School, St Monica’s Primary School and Gilmore College for Girls.

Selected by young editors from Footscray Primary School, Footscray West Primary School, St Monica’s Primary School and St John’s Primary School.
