How many writers and illustrators can you pack into the offices of an independent Melbourne Publishing house?

Ford Street was going for the record on Friday night with the launch of Rich & Rare – the latest anthology for teens, edited by Paul Collins.

Ford Street was packed with hugely talented and wonderfully witty Australian writers and illustrators (just like the Rich & Rare collection, itself) with uber fantasy writer, Isobelle Carmody introducing the contributors and cleverly weaving a thread to connect the collection of diverse pieces.

So glad I jumped on a plane to join the celebrations.

FOMO, moi? Probs.
