For all you other PNG writers, Kristy Moroney, the editor, is saying, "Local writers and photographers are encouraged to submit their work relating to Papua New Guinea's mining, oil and gas sectors for publication in 'PNG Resources' magazine."

She has already run articles about the Crocodile Prize and means what she says.

You can send articles to 'The Editor, PNG Resources Magazine, PO Box 127, Mount Hawthorn WA 6915' or email her at
