The team behind this funky zine set out to turn publishing inside out. The zine is backwards, the content is about the nonlinear nature of life, and the reading experience is flipped on its back. Inside Outside challenged the team to think creatively and create a publication that is both accessible and totally unlike anything else.
Working with iconic Australian literary magazine, The Lifted Brow, the team behind The Comeback used 'the back' as a springboard for creating this dynamic magazine. The Comeback is a stylish journal with poetry, fiction, nonfiction and everything in between.
A nonfiction anthology filled with essays, stories, memoirs, poetry and visual content all pulsing with energy. The Pulse Team had to commission writing, photography and illustration, read through submissions and curate a cohesive anthology. The result – a book with something for everyone.
Tongue In Cheek is a vibrant online magazine (developed in partnership with The Lifted Brow) that will use the human mouth as a starting point for explorative works of fiction, essay, poetry, cultural commentary and visual art.

Invisible Ink: Critical Perspectives on Typography is a collection of essays written about typography in response to some of the seminal typographic texts: Beatrice Warde’s The Crystal Goblet, Jan Tschichold’s The Principles of The New Typography, and Walter Benjamin’s Unpacking My Library. These critical essays explore the intricacies of typography that shape the way we experience the written word, without us even realising it.
Our first issue takes on the immense theme of history within the compact locale of the RMIT City Campus. Entitled Making History, we have invited authors from our own Creative Writing degree to contribute to non-fiction and fiction writing that digs up, down and into the layers of time and culture that move under our feet at RMIT.
