The Voyage: Edited by Chandani Lokuge & David Morley

Welcome to The Voyage, an innovative new anthology of writing by staff and postgraduates from both Monash in Australia and Warwick in England. We believe all writing, at its best, is creative writing. To that end we have drawn our distinguished contributors not only from English and Creative Writing but also from other departments in Humanities, from our Faculties of Science and Social Science, and from our Administration. What's more, we invited writers and scholars who have some practical connection with Warwick and Monash from both within and outside the academy.
We were open to all forms and genres: poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction including scholarship and biography, drama and most other forms of creativity you might imagine. We were happy for our contributors to write on any theme but we think that the core of the book is what it means to journey. These might be imagined or remembered journeys, physical or metaphorical journeys, or journeys into knowledge or across time.

See a video introduction of the book by editors David Morley and Chandani Lokuge here. Further, find below a series of readings by selected authors reading their contributions to this wonderful anthology.

James Harringman, Editor
Nicolas Pillai, Film Editor
Day 15. About half way through and I am proud to say we have raised £135 so far. I'd like to think that, now we are actually armed with fund raising moustaches we can do better in the second half.

It is all for the excellent cause of Prostate Cancer awareness, so please chip in HERE

Movember: Day 10 Update

Nicolas Pillai - Film Editor
James Harringman - Editor-in-Chief

We have reached day 10 of our upper-lip shaving abstinence. I don't think either of us is worthy of the cover of Moustache Monthly quite yet, but the month is young. The reason for all this remains the same, to raise awareness and as much money as we can for The Prostate Cancer Charity. If you can spare some dollar, pound or yen, please drop it in the e-collection pot of the Silkworms Ink 'Mo Space'- link below. Thank you!

Silkworms Ink does Movember

This month Silkworms Ink will be supporting the Movember movement.


"During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
On Movember 1st, guys register at with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.


"The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research
The funds raised in the UK support the number one and two male specific cancers - prostate and testicular cancer. The funds raised are directed to programmes run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research. Together, these channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programmes in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research."

What we have planned…

It's a secret. Although, surprise, surprise, we do have a few moustache themed tricks up our sleeve for the coming month. Stay tuned.

Day 1

Myself and the excellent Nicolas Pillai will be representing the Silkworms. Follow our upper lip adventures as we give you regular updates throughout the month.

We start here on November 1st. Clean shaven.
