There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Island welcomes submissions of nonfiction, fiction and poetry from Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, as well as from Australians living abroad.
You do not need to be an Island subscriber to submit. However, we believe that writers ought to be readers of the literary magazines in which their work is published, so for this reason all contributor's fee will include a subscription for 4 issues (if you are not already a subscriber).
For a small not-for-profit literary magazine, this is a necessary step in a long-term strategy to build circulation. This, in turn, will allow us to increase the amount we can afford to pay our writers.
