Empty Sky, which draws its title from Sylvia Plath's 'I talk to God but the sky is empty', features the top emerging writers from UTS' creative writing program and showcases a range of extraordinary works. This edition is introduced by writer, editor and activist Bri Lee, the award-winning author of Eggshell Skull.
Our world is tumultuous - from political upheaval to environmental decay, the Earth is in the process of shifting and reforming in every possible way. Technology surrounds us, encroaching. Society both evolves and regresses. It can seem as if everything is on fire.
In one way or another, struggle stains human lives. These pieces depict precisely that. There is fantastic struggle against the self and the world and whoever is listening, and in this way, these works cry out to be read. They show that human lives are full: full of fighting and grief, full of compassion and joy.
