AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tincture Journal has been running for five years now, and the December 2017 issue will be our twentieth, so it’s with very mixed feelings that we’re announcing that this issue will also be our last. Some of you may have seen this coming, since we quietly removed the ability to purchase subscriptions from the website a few months ago; some of you may be surprised we lasted this long (I know I am!); and some of you may be disappointed at seeing an Australian literary journal fade away into history.'

Political Reflections : Charlottesville, Alexandra O'Sullivan , single work prose

'Sometimes I feel like there’s too much going on in the world around me, and it all cuts too closely to my bones. Writing anchors the important bits down, so I can manage the trauma accordingly. When I wrote a short essay titled ‘The Day Trump Won’ to cope with the fact that Donald Trump had become President—and to talk about myself—I expected it to end there. But Trump kept doing things, and I kept feeling things about the things he was doing.' (Introduction)
