2012 RMIT Creative Writing Anthology, Little Spines
A collaboration project with the 2012 third year Creative Writing students of RMIT. Little Spines is their yearly publication containing stories that are not a depiction of weakness, but rather a physical and emotional strength through engaging the concepts of strength, flow, hope, isolation and fragility.
The chosen name Little Spines reflects the structure of a human spine, a backbone that acts as a structure for all around it, yet the impact of anything, positive or negative, can change the way that the spine functions. The pattern placed throughout the book is a base element that ties in all the underlying conceptual themes outlined within the writing. The interconnected, complex and detailed structure allows the individual squares to be a constituent component. They stand on their own, yet when placed together become stronger and are able to flow collectively, finding simplicity as the components move and grow.
Thank you for watching.
