The Lifted Brow Issue #31 Launch with readings from 'the queer unconscious'


  • Bella Union 54 Victoria Street Carlton, VIC, 3053 Australia (map)

Issue 31 of The Lifted Brow is here! And as always, we're going to celebrate it with a big ol' launch – this time at the Melbourne Writers Festival, kicking off their closing night party.

TLB31 is a special one: inside it you will find the usual melange of exceptional fiction, non-fiction, comics, poetry and more, plus the winning piece from our Prize for Experimental Nonfiction, and also a special folio of work from queer writers and artists, guest-edited by TLB founder Ronnie Scott. 

Roll on in at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start, which is when we’ll be celebrating with a rapid-fire session of readings from the 'queer unconscious' contributors, including Peter Polites, Ronnie Scott, Francesca Rendle-Short, Alice Chipkin and George Haddad. This project is supported by the City of Melbourne 2016 arts grants program.

From 8pm, DJ sets by Moodleton (Amy Middleton, Archer Magazine) and Hannah Donnelly (Sovereign Trax) will help launch our 31st issue and also close out MWF for 2016.

Free to attend!
