The Lifted Brow is a biannual publication from Melbourne and Brisbane containing a melange of writing, illustration, music, and a lot that falls in the gray area in between.

Touted by the New York Times books blog and responsible for publishing some of Australia’s latest and greatest emerging talent, the Brow has published work from Christos Tsiolkas and Douglas Copeland. The Lifted Brow has carved its own cross-disciplinary niche in the magazine world and Issue # 7 features a Halloween story mash up, Benjamin Law and Michaela McGuire’s Adventures at the Wooroolin B&S Ball and illustrations by Tim Furie. What’s not to love?
