DETAILS

Magnificent is launched as an experimental publishing platform. Published four-monthly in Tasmania, this modern day novella presents an opportunity to reconsider contemporary social issues in Tasmania. Magnificent questions our relationship to people, identity and place by connecting extraordinary actions and everyday lives. Based on a celebration of the local, each edition of Magnificent is FREE to subscribers in 2009. With a screwed up identity – part magazine, part documentary, part novel, Magnificent presents a unique twist on the nineteenth-century novella – short tales of country life brought to, and orated in the city. True to historical form, each edition will turn around a single incident or significant issue.
