Leaf Mag

Our editors round up the best pieces about publishing—stories, think pieces, blog posts. If it’s good, it will go here.

While we endeavour to link to resources that are freely available to read, we strongly encourage subscribing to Australian literary journals to ensure their future. Articles behind paywalls will be noted.

Arranged thematically. Updated regularly. Australian-specific content.
