Eureka Street – A Change of Direction
The award-winning magazine of Australian art, theology and public affairs, Eureka Street, is taking a change of direction after twelve successful years under the helm of Morag Fraser….and it’s more good news for its readership.
Marcelle Mogg has been appointed as the new editor of Eureka Street, a publication with ten issues a year owned by the Jesuit Order of Australia.
Eureka Street enjoys a well-founded reputation as a magazine of record in Australia and Marcelle Mogg intends to build on this reputation by continuing to source writing and analysis of the highest standards.
While the magazine will continue its commitment to providing a forum for discussion on political, social, cultural and religious issues of importance to Australians, Mogg plans to introduce some new features including short fiction.
Mogg says she will also broaden the scope of the magazine to include features that provide an ethical perspective on business and economic affairs.
Besides being recognised as one of the best independent politico-cultural magazines produced in Australia, Eureka Street has won Walkley and Gutenberg Awards and regularly wins various categories in the Australian Religious Press and Australian Catholic Press competitions.
To celebrate the re-launch of Eureka Street the new editor, Marcelle Mogg, and Reader’s Feast Bookstore invite Pro Bono Australia readers to a discussion and reflection on the three issues that have been priorities for the magazine in its twelve-year history.
