Ideas. Writing. Culture.


All University of Tasmania students, staff and alumni are invited to submit an entry into the inaugural University of Tasmania / Island Competition.

Works may be submitted into one of three categories, literary nonfiction, fiction and fine art. Submissions open 20 February 2017 and close 2 August 2017.

First prize includes publication in Island 151, an annual subscription to Island magazine and a cash prize of $1000.

We encourage you to respond to some of the themes you encounter in Island 147 or Island 148. Our suggestions of home, place, belonging and landscape are ideas to inspire you, but are not exclusive or prescriptive.
