Reading Victoria


2018 is the 10th anniversary of Melbourne’s designation as a City of Literature, and the Melbourne City of Literature Office is celebrating by publishing a new piece of writing each week, free and online, themed around a suburb or town in Victoria.

Every Monday morning of 2018, an original piece of writing will be delivered to subscribers inboxes. From fiction to nonfiction, poetry to prose, the only constant will be their titles and their location in a region of Melbourne, and Victoria.

Edited by Sophie Cunningham, Andre Dao, Elizabeth Flux, Omar Sakr and Veronica Sullivan the 52 pieces that make up Reading Victoria traverse the state as well as including work by some of our most respected writers as well as work from our brightest emerging talent.
