Bor­der­lands is a home­grown lit­er­ary jour­nal that offers North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry writ­ers, artists and poets a new forum for thought and expres­sion will be launched at Alice Springs. Gen­er­al edi­tor Dr Glenn Mor­ri­son said Bor­der­lands Mag­a­zine was a sto­ry­telling pub­li­ca­tion that aimed to fos­ter a unique Ter­ri­to­ry voice.

Bor­der­lands is a non-aca­d­e­m­ic pub­li­ca­tion that hopes to cap­ture some of the essence of the Ter­ri­to­ry and our expe­ri­ence of liv­ing in it,’ Dr Mor­ri­son said. A first online pilot edi­tion is now live at https://​bor​der​lands​.cdu​.edu​.au/​i​s​s​u​e​-​1​-​n​o​v​e​m​b​e​r​-​2019/, with diverse con­tent includ­ing fic­tion, non­fic­tion, poet­ry and audio-visu­als that exploit the dig­i­tal environment.’

This launch also marks a sec­ond Bor­der­lands achieve­ment for 2019, the pub­li­ca­tion of a spe­cial fea­ture of Ter­ri­to­ry writ­ers in edi­tion 64.2 of West­er­ly, the high­ly respect­ed lit­er­ary mag­a­zine pub­lished at Uni­ver­si­ty of West­ern Aus­tralia since 1956. Curat­ed by Bor­der­lands, the fea­ture show­cas­es six Ter­ri­to­ry writ­ers and their work, Jo Dut­ton, Mary Anne But­ler, Joanne Tus­cano, David McGuigan & Anony­mous.
