Co - is an experimental publishing house based on Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri woi-wurrung Country. Co - was founded by Christine McFetridge and Josephine Mead in 2020. With the ethos of delivering Australian literary and visual arts practices, poetic research, and critical arts writing, Co - aims to publish fresh and dynamic new work. Through a quarterly online journal and future printed publications, Co - aims to publish work from a variety of creatives, with particular focus on bringing the voices of First Nations, LGBTQIA+ , sexually diverse, culturally and linguistically diverse, and practitioners living with a disability, to the fore. With a strong belief that creative practitioners should be remunerated for their output, Co - intends to secure funding for all published commissions. Co - believes in Co - editing, Co - writing, Collaboration and Cooperation. We believe—as creators and consumers—we are stronger when in open conversation.

Copies are available from Bookshop by Uro, in-store and online, for $24 (excluding shipping).

Issue two is possible thanks to generous support from Bodriggy Brewing Company, City of Yarra and Collingwood Yards, and collaboration with BANH Inc (Belgium Ave and Collingwood Neighbourhood Houses).
