A big part of putting together Thaw are the wonderful contributors who do it for the love, and not for the money. We couldn't put Thaw together without them, and we always are very thankful to the creative folk who help us create our little publication. We always make it our mission to give credit where it's due, but unfortunately in the last issue, we forgot to mention someone who helped us out by supplying photo's for one our articles. Jade Smithard took photo's for our piece on live music in Ballarat, The hills are alive, and we forgot to put her name in the credits. Sorry Jade, and thanks.

Please check out her website if you would like to view more of her stuff.

Positive Posters

These guys have been in contact with us, as they thought we might be interested in what they are up to, and we could encourage people to get involved. They were right! Unfortunately their current comp will be done by the time we have our next issue out, so we can't do it via our mag, but I thought I would give them a shout out here.

"Positive Posters promotes positive thought in places that need it most. The idea is simple. What if we ask designers from all corners of the earth to submit poster designs that convey positive messages eg. world peace. to us and we pasted them up around the streets of Melbourne other major cities around the world ."

Check out their blog.

Today I made deliveries of Issue 5 to most of our stockists, and was excited to hear that people had already been asking at a few of the cafes whether they have the new issue of Thaw in stock yet. Thanks for the enthusiasm people. Sorry I didn't have it there first thing this morning whoever you are. Hopefully you picked one up at lunchtime.

Am investigating getting the mag into some new stockistss in Daylesford next week, and then venturing to Bendigo soon after. Let me know if you have any suggestions of places to approach.
