Experimental literature that’s actually good
Dzenana Vucic is one of the volunteer editors behind The Lifted Brow, the literary magazine that styles itself as “a quarterly attack journal from Australia and the world”. Providing a platform for underrepresented voices, they do a great job of tapping talent that might otherwise be overlooked, uncovering experimental forms of literature and producing brilliantly exciting work. In this conversation she speaks about how the team make that happen, the pressures they face as a group of volunteers working without pay, and the many ways in which the Brow is growing beyond the magazine itself.
I recorded my conversation with Dzenana in our offices a few weeks ago, but this is the first one I’ve edited and posted from home as the Coronavirus shuts everything down here in London. Of course nobody knows how long that’s going to go on for, but I’m planning to keep the podcasts coming every Friday, so if you don’t already follow us please do so on Soundcloud or iTunes or wherever you normally get your podcasts, and we’ll be able to deliver the new episodes to you as soon as they’re ready.
