Since 1956, Experiment has kept appearing irregularly, once or twice a year with 'things' contributed by the students of the University. Of names which appeared in past issues, we remember J.K.Baxter, Charles Doyle, Barry Mitcalfe, and Peter Bland, who recently won an Australian poetry award. Another name is that of Gordon Challis, whose 'Black King' this year, like his four poems last year, was judged the 'Best Poetry Entry' by Professor Joan Stevens.
R. Amato's 'Window Watching', like his 'Summer Night' of last year, was, in Professor Stevens' opinion, the best prose piece submitted. It is, however, pleasing to note a new group of younger writers whose contributions show promise and are of a good standard. 'The First Months' by P.I.Wilkinson is particularly distinguished by its taut, effective writing, and 'A Memory' by A.L.Wendt has the merit of being really about something.
We wish to thank Professor Stevens for her kind cooperation in judging the pieces submitted. Contributions for further issues are invited.
