We have some exciting and important news!

 

We are transforming the journal into a quarterly digital publication.

 

We have spent the past four years working to become a journal that supports both emerging and established writers.

 

In particular, we’ve worked to become a beacon for under-represented narratives—publishing creative work by Australian women, the queer community, and writers and artists of colour.

 

We think we’re burning brightly and we’ve been so proud to publish some of today’s most outstanding artists in Australia and abroad.

 

But we’re always striving to make The Suburban Review more effective at bringing these unique voices to our readership. And at this point the costs of a print publication far outweigh the benefits.

 

Making the move to a quarterly digital publication means that we can:

 

Lower the cost for our readers. The digital version of the magazine will cost half the price and we can once again offer bundle rates to our subscribers.

 

Pay more money to more contributors for creative work.

 

Save resources by avoiding printing, shipping and postage. It’s more sustainable, financially and environmentally.

 

Streamline the workload for our volunteer editors, who work tirelessly and with such enthusiasm alongside work and study.

 

Put our energy into using the online space creatively. The journal will be available in epub3 and interactive PDF format, allowing us to experiment with alternative ways of storytelling, while producing beautifully designed digital journals.
