Previous eight covers of The Suburban Review overlaid with text "#16: UNFUNDED"

 
Our final issue for 2019 is almost here! The Suburban Review #16: UNFUNDED has a very literal title because, well, our funding has not been renewed. This means that we don’t have any external funding to help us produce this issue. Our belief at TSR is that it is important to be transparent about the challenges we face in producing a beautiful, high-quality, quarterly creative journal. To nobody’s surprise, funding is the number one challenge.

 
But, we won’t be letting a lack of external funding get in the way of publishing quality work! We’re returning to our tried and tested strategy to produce TSR: Pozible. If you value a robust, independent publishing industry in Australia, please consider pre-ordering a copy of #16: UNFUNDED, or purchasing any of the other fantastic rewards on offer here.

 
As for submissions, send us anything and everything you think we want to read! This issue has an OPEN THEME, although we do encourage submitters to think about (and maybe respond to) the changing nature of the Australian (and global) arts economy.
