‘Liminal’ magazine is a relatively young, energetic online space ‘for the exploration, interrogation and celebration of the Asian-Australian experience’.
To learn more of the magazine and its creative team, visit the 2017 Digital Writer’s Festival session, ‘A Platform of One’s Own: Liminal Magazine’.
The most recent issue of the magazine features Sumudu Samarawickrama’s interview with Michelle D’Souza, poet, critic and managing editor of Mascara Literary Review.
Can you tell us what you have planned for the future?
I have been working on my novel and a trickle of new poems. I’m delighted that UWAP are re-publishing my second poetry collection, Vishvarūpa, this year as it was out of print with 5 Islands Press who are closing shop. I’m also thrilled for the collection of stories that Margaret River Press are publishing, We’ll Stand In That Place, which I was privileged to judge.
Of course, I hope that as a community we can continue to support each other and expand our diverse, transnational spaces, reaching out to writers from other countries and being in conversation with writers and thinkers here in Australia. I am careful in what editing roles I might take up going forward as it has conflicted with my writing time.
I am also writing a scholarly essay on Interceptionality and the work of Behrouz Boochani as a way of reflecting on the unsettlement of Australian poetics.
