Farewell to Paul Thwaites

After eleven years managing the production of all forty-five editions of Griffith REVIEW – including several iterations of the website, countless posters, bookmarks, flyers – Production Manager Paul Thwaites has decided it is time to go fishing. 

Paul has been an essential member of the Griffith REVIEW team since the start and will be greatly missed. He brought his long-standing expertise at print production to the venture, working professionally, diligently and with good cheer, with printers, typesetters, web developers and distributors. Over this time the publishing industry has changed dramatically as the internet has disrupted old ways of doing things and created new products and opportunities. Paul has been excited by the challenges and, like many of us, looks back with some amazement at the way things have changed. He is now looking forward to watching the future unfold, but without the day to day pressure.  

It is no mean feat to have managed this process and never miss a deadline. Over this time Paul has worked with hundreds of writers ensuring that the essays, stories and poems we have published in print and online have been presented as well as possible. 

One of his special editorial contributions has come from the photo essays that have featured in most editions – he has taken great pleasure in working closely with the artists to produce these beautiful series, within the constraints of our format.

We wish him and Bev every happiness in the next phase of their lives on the beautiful Fraser Coast.
