Island welcomes submissions of nonfiction, fiction and poetry.
You do not need to be a subscriber to submit.
However, we believe that writers ought to be the first readers of the literary magazines in which they publish their work. For this reason, if you are not already a subscriber when your work is accepted for publication, your contributor’s fee package will include an annual subscription.
For a small literary magazine, this is a necessary step in a long-term strategy to build circulation. This, in turn, will allow us to increase the amount we can afford to pay our writers.
Island aims to properly recognise the value of writers’ work and financially remunerate writers appropriately for the time and effort involved in their contribution. To help us achieve this goal, increased income via sales, subscriptions and donations is essential.
For more information on our contributor fee policy, see here.
Please include a 50-word bio with your submission. If successful, you will have the opportunity to amend this bio at the time of publication.
Can you write a climate future?
Island magazine invites Tasmanian writers to ‘write the future’ by creatively exploring climate change, adaptation and resilience.
Thanks to a Dr Edward Hall Environment Grant from the City of Hobart, we are able to offer three writers the chance to develop a piece of creative nonfiction or fiction for publication in Island with a payment of $1000 each.
Island believes that responding creatively to the impacts of a changing climate and imagining possible adaptations can help to transform abstract concepts into relatable worlds, deepening the community’s engagement with this crucial challenge.
What do you need to do?
Read the City of Hobart’s Hobart Climate Change Information for Decision Making document to better understand the expected impacts of climate change in Tasmania.
Develop an expression of interest (not necessarily your whole piece) and submit via the link below by midnight 28 February 2019.
Before submission, please read the guidelines for eligibility, instructions on how to submit an expression of interest, and detailed terms and conditions. All this information can be found when clicking SUBMIT HERE below.
