2018 TLB Subscriber Drive, Big Book Sale, and Fundraising Appeal

Every year, we organise  a Subscriber Drive to encourage those of you out there who aren't currently subscribers to our magazine T he Lifted Brow  to join our subscriber base, and to encourage those of you already subscribing to renew your subscription for another year's worth of magazine.

This year, we're doing it all again – but we're also elevating things a whole heap.   The thing is, it's that time of year where we need money!  We've almost run out  , and all we want to do is keep on keeping on, keep on doing what we do best, keep on out of debt. 

So: not only are  we running a Big Book Sale, whereby we've  cut  prices on selected books and created special bundle deals,    but we are also running our very first Fundraising Appeal. We've in recent times transitioned to become a fully-fledged and paid-up not-for-profit organisation, and this means that we can accept tax-deductible donations. So if you or someone you know  values what we do, and you or this person has some extra cash, why not give it to us, so we can keep on with our mission of finding, publishing and championing the most interesting voices and viewpoints.

Donate to TLB


Thank you for even considering donating! You're truly terrific for understanding and valuing our role to the literary sector.

From day one we've sought to find and publish what we believe is the most interesting, challenging and important work, publishing the writers and artists who deserve the platform, and we've then tried to make enough money doing this to continue on doing it. At TLB, profit has never been our goal: we've always been about culture, not commerce; we seek meaning, not money.

And yet we still need money to keep doing it all. It's expensive to print our magazines locally and sustainably! It's expensive to pay our contributors as fairly as possible! It's expensive running an established and growing not-for-profit organisation in this day and age!

Your donation will go directly to the costs of production of all we do: it will help us pay the significant printing costs of our magazine and our books; it will help us pay the contributor fees of those who make work for our magazine or our website; it will help us cover the myriad expenses we're constantly encountering, such as launch and event costs, postage costs, accounting costs, web hosting costs, general office costs, travel costs, and other costs. (Note: all staff at TLB are currently volunteers – your money will always go production and contributor costs.)

Any amount you can give is deeply appreciated by all us here at TLB, and is equally appreciated by our contributors and our readers. Donations over $100 will be recognised on this website unless you choose to remain anonymous.

You can also make a difference by purchasing  any of our magazine issues or any of our books  for yourself or someone else, or by  subscribing to our magazine, or by  gifting a subscription to someone else.

Your donation is fully tax deductible. Our organisation TLB Society Inc. is listed on the Register of Cultural Organisations and reports to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
