Catalyst Magazine 2020 EP: 1 ‘HEATWAVE’

The Heatwave Issue.

Our overarching theme this year is, “Seasons for Growth.” Starting in summer with heatwave and moving through the seasons.

What does this term trigger within you? An image of Australian desert? Your childhood home’s broken air con? A hot flush of anger? Burnt orange sunsets? Zuper-Doopers?

Check out our style guide for tips for pitching your work to us!

We’d love some visuals to match the following content ideas, so send them through to rmitcatalyst@gmail.com

Please keep in mind, Catalyst is a publication run by students, for students. Remember who your audience is. Try to keep your pieces student focused and in scope of what a uni student would be interested in reading!
