When Perth-based writer/actor/director Will O’Mahony creates something, he thinks of a quote from American writer David Foster Wallace.

An Interview with Newcastle Typographer Sophie Elinor

My story on Sophie was originally written for Headjam’s blog.

Headjam heard about Sophie Elinor via Facebook (which Sophie is not on) after her clever typography of ampersand illustrations, The Amperclan, went viral.

Newcastle Poetry Scene: David Graham and the Anti-slam
