Informit Literature & Culture Collection - the best of Australian literature, commentaries and debates

The literary magazine is an important part of Australia’s literary and cultural heritage. Small publications have proved a vital conduit for emerging and established writers to develop their craft and to engage with central ideas and debates about Australian literary, cultural, and social life. A number of these are now being offered in the Informit Literature & Culture Collection.

For the first time, titles such as Meanjin and Southerly will be available through Informit from cover to cover.

Created in partnership with the Australia Council for the Arts, the Informit Literature & Culture Collection is an essential reference database for academic, school and public libraries and for teachers and students of literary studies, cultural studies and creative writing courses. Researchers and students of Australian literature, history and society will find this Collection a rich source of fiction, poetry, cultural politics and the ideas that have helped define the unique Australian identity.

Key journals include Meanjin, Quadrant, Island, Wet Ink, Griffith Review and Southerly.
