Giramondo’s literary journal HEAT was founded in 1996, with the purpose of publishing innovative Australian and international writers of the highest quality. Fifteen issues were published in the first series, from 1996-2000. It was followed by the new series HEAT, designed by Harry Williamson, with twenty-four issues published between 2001 and 2011. The third series of HEAT, edited by Alexandra Christie, will be published bimonthly from early 2022, in a new print format designed by Jenny Grigg. It will continue to specialise in poetry, fiction and non-fiction, with the focus thrown sharply on the individual writers featured in each issue. Further details will be posted as soon as they are available.
