Island magazine is a not-for-profit print-only quarterly of essays, short stories, poetry and art.

Since 1979 we have been celebrating ideas, writing and culture from our base in Hobart, Tasmania. We value variety and excellence, publishing new, emerging and established writers from mainland Australia and overseas as well as from Tasmania. We advocate for excellent writing and for the joys and benefits of reading.

As a small not-for-profit arts organisation, we rely on your support, so if you like Island, please follow us on social media, tell your friends about us, subscribe, give a gift subscription, or consider making a tax-deductible donation. Your support will help us to keep publishing storytellers, thinkers and artists, and every contribution is greatly appreciated.
