A VIRTUAL REALITY
The DH Lawrence Society of Australia was in the vanguard of modern
publishing and IT when, last March, we announced that future issues
of Rananim would be online only.
Now, The Christian Science Monitor, a great and venerable
US newspaper has followed suit and will no longer publish a hard
copy edition: it will be available, like Rananim, solely online.
Publishing only online has at least two big advantages: it costs
only a tiny amount because of the savings on paper, printing and
distribution. And it means we can publish more often. When an
event of interest to the Society takan event takes place we can
put up a story and photos about it quickly.
This issue contains the story and pictures of our Jacaranda Cruise
on the steam yacht Lady Hopetoun (Page 1) with more photos
on following pages), and an interesting article by one of our
UK correspondents, Joanthan Long, on the artist Mark Gertler who
was a close friend of Lawrence (see page 1).
We will try and alert you by email to future virtual editions
of Rananim but we also suggest you call up www.cybersydney.com.au/dhl
from time-to-time to check out our latest editions.
CONTRIBUTIONS TO RANANIM
Contributions to Rananim are welcomed. If you are
able to send your article by e-mail please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please use Microsoft Word. We are trying to standardise
the style: indent the first word of each paragraph 5mm and
don't make a line space between paragraphs. Put titles of
books in upper and lower case italics, and don't put quotation
marks around them. If you want to quote from a published
book, please do not indent it but make a one line space
before and after the quotation. But mark it as an indent
if you also send a hard copy. Many thanks - it will save
a lot of time! Please contact the publisher, Sandra Jobson,
for further style details and formatting (email@example.com)..
