if you’re making new year’s resolutions and have put ‘find a new job’ at the top of that list, read Keelia Fitzpatrick’s account of how not to get stuck in a shit job first. It’s one of a theme of articles from the new edition of Frankie that looks at starting over. Another by a host of writers shares their experiences of starting from scratch, with tales of moving country, changing jobs and making changes to their love lives. Elsewhere in the issue, there’s a profile of Catherine Dwyer who in her new film explores Australia’s feminist revolution. There are also interviews with artists, a photoessay from Italy, creepy stories, stories from the playground and much much more.

it’s been a while since Frankie has been around in the MagShuffle roster but we’re pleased to have issue 85 in the ranks. In this issue the interview and photoessay featuring the work of Bangalore-based photographer, Sameer Raichur is not to be missed – Sameer’s work captures the terrifically kitsch Indian chariots that escort grooms to weddings. There are meets with the people behind an Australian boozy bakery, the campaigner who’s fighting gay conversation therapy, as well as young playwrights, crochet and retro bikinis.add to my subscription
