Literary Magazines Australia brings together the best new writing on offer in Australia from ten of the country's most respected literary magazines.
These ten magazines showcase interesting and provocative work by new and established writers while fostering a culture of dynamic discussion.
Now under the banner of Literary Magazines Australia (LMA), you can find them together - providing easy access to a vital range of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, essays, factual writing, literary criticism, reviews, opinions, and letters.
The Literature Board of the Australia Council supports all ten of these magazines to publish new writing.
Dennis Haskell, Chair of the Literature Board, says:
"Magazines are thermometers of a society's vitality, culture, interests and concerns. But looking around any Australian newsagency, you might think the temperature is pretty low; many of the biggest selling magazines contain no more than trite gossip and glossy pictures."
"Australia's literary magazines provide an antidote to all that; they are a meeting place in print or pixels of imaginative explorations of our lives and our languages. They provide an opportunity for experiment that the economics of book publishing might not allow. They can stir your conscience while you stir your tea."
