40th Anniversary Appeal

Thank you for visiting our donations page.

 Island magazine is an independent, not-for-profit Tasmanian publication, which connects people all over Australia and beyond through ideas, writing and culture – and we are now in our 40th year.

 We believe that Island matters. For readers, writers, artists and thinkers. For nurturing new and emerging talent. For space and time to see the world differently.

 Even though the magazine remains highly regarded and is maintaining levels of paid subscriptions and retail sales, we face testing times. With no corporate parent (such as a big publishing house or university), we depend on the essential support and goodwill of our community of readers, writers, artists and benefactors. 

This support, and that from Arts Tasmania, involves a compact: not merely to serve readers and to support writers and other artists, but also to display enterprise. Demonstrably, we’re lean, disciplined and resourceful.

Your support will help Island remain a leading literary magazine of compelling ideas, excellent writing and cultural breadth.

Warm wishes and thanks from the Island team
