Island, Tasmania’s unique literary and cultural magazine has launched their first annual subscribathon, with great prizes up for grabs for new and renewing subscribers.

The magazine has recently been reformatted and redesigned – Publishing the best Tasmanian essays, commentary, fiction and poetry alongside their international counterparts, the magazine is the best way to showcase the intelligent aspects of the island state.

All new and renewing subscribers for the month of April will go in the running to win some great book prizes including signed copies of Australian literary legend, Frank Moorhouse’s Edith Trilogy and signed copies of Natasha Cica’s Pedder Dreaming.

The reasons for subscribing are many – The magazine is looking beautiful, the quality, intelligence and beauty of the work inside is hard to match so it’s a win-win situation (it is lovely to get home and find something magnificent in your letterbox).

The latest issue features the edgy drawings of Tasmanian artist Tom O’Hern, new fiction from Carmel Bird and Georgia Blain, a character profile of Frank Moorhouse’s effulgent character, Edith Campbell Berry, from his Edith Trilogy, an essay on translation by Daniel Hahn, the Director of the British Centre for Literary Translation some great new poetry and a lot more.

The annual subscription rate has been REDUCED to $60 a year, which is a saving of $25.

In the changing face of funding for arts organisations, Island recognises that subscriptions are the lifeblood of the magazine.
