About the publisher:
Transportation Press is an ambitious literary project that seeks to draw connections between writers from seemingly disparate locations.
Its premiere publication, Islands and Cities investigates links which have existed between Tasmania and London from the time of convict transportation to the present.
Seeking to explore deep historical influences within a contemporary context, each publication will present a collection of short stories, exposing cultural connections, contrast, contradictions and coincidence between two locations.
The Transportation Press project has brought together two editors from each end of the globe. Sean Preston is founder and editor of Open Pen literary magazine and the London based editor. Rachel Edwards, former editor of Island magazine, is this project’s Tasmanian based editor.
