Turbine is published annually by the International Institute of Modern Letters at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and hosted by the NZ Electronic Text Centre.

The 2008 issue has been edited and produced by Louise Wallace and Francis Cooke — who each completed an MA in Creative Writing at the IIML this year, with technical support from the staff of the Electronic Text Centre.

Audio files of Charis Boos, Lynn Jenner, Alexandra Keeble and Catharina van Bohemen in this issue are sourced from live recordings of the Institute’s annual readings series, Writers on Mondays, with assistance from Robbie Duncan at Braeburn Recording Studio. Thanks to the revision process some of these works have undergone in the course of the year, there may be small variations between the audio files and the printed texts. Additional audio was recorded at the IIML.

Turbine design was created by Ian Finch. Thanks to Robert Cross for the photograph of David Geary that accompanies his interview.
