With the publication of the fourth edition of the "Voice of the Land'', we have exciting news of our debut on the Internet.

FATSIL has taken a page through the AIATSIS site to publish a series of articles entitled "Language of the Month".

These will take the form of contributions from different language areas throughout Australia, presenting stories, poems or songs, and including photos or artwork to complement the text.

"Language of the Month" begins with a contribution in Gumbaynggir from Northern NSW.

The articles will be reproduced in this newsletter and you'll find the first one, featuring the poetry of Emily Walker, appears on pages 4 and 5.

We are grateful to staff at AIATSIS for their encouragement and assistance in setting up the project.

The entry is located at www.aiatsis.gov.au

If you would like more information or have material to contribute to "Language of the Month" please give me a call on Phone 07 38070885 or send a fax to 07 3807 8922.

Faith Baisden.
