Editor’s note

I envision the first issue of this magazine to be like the ‘Marrickville Pause’ in itself – a short inescapable moment of distraction, where contemplation and interpretation set in between a deep breath and a squint. A poem of sorts, an untimely ‘Pause that Refreshes’.

I want to thank the people who’ve allowed me to publish their poems in the first issue of Marrickville Pause and Nick Chlopicki, whom helped shape this magazine idea initially. I will also use this space to welcome submissions for the next issue I hope to release in August. The deadline being July 31st.
