    ARCHER MAGAZINE #15 - the FRIENDSHIP issue

    This edition of Archer Magazine features articles on friends with benefits, loneliness, intergenerational friendship, and chosen family.

    “Friendships are beautiful, complicated, sustaining, lifelong, fleeting. They can be sexual. They can be found in unlikely places, be forged with unlikely people, flourish in unlikely circumstances. They can be entirely predictable. They can be a replacement for a partner, or a family. They can be with a partner, or family members. They can be overwhelming.” – Lucy Watson, editor-in-chief

    Ask yourself this: What state am I in? And how much is it a reaction to the state of the world today? Griffith Review 72: States of Mind examines the ways we think about our psychological, existential and political condition. Anxiety and depression are on the rise in Australia and across the globe. Digital media has created a pandemic of loneliness and disconnection – even before the other pandemic arrived. Ideological extremism is widening our divisions and threatening our democracies. And all the while, the wellness industry is spinning everything from mindfulness to minimalism into big business. How do these forces help or hinder our psychological equilibrium? What salves do we seek for our own survival or simply to make ourselves feel better, from medical interventions to personal reinventions? How can we ensure the sustainability and effectiveness of our mental health responses – from policy and pharmacy through to prevention? And what does this mean for the years that lie ahead? Griffith Review 72: States of Mind explores the parameters of our cognitive landscapes through the prisms of the personal, the psychological, the philosophical and more.

    My first encounter with an Australian poem, after arriving in Tasmania as an overseas immigrant teenager, was Gwen Harwood’s ‘Barn Owl’ (the devastating but beautiful first part of ‘Father and Child’). I have never forgotten it. Gwen Harwood, who would have turned 100 in 2020, remains Tasmania’s most recognised poet. It has been a pleasure to be able to run the Gwen Harwood Poetry Prize competition in 2020/21, and we thank the Cultural Fund of the Copyright Agency and The Hobart Bookshop for sponsoring the prize. Enjoy the five fine poems in this issue, selected by Island's poetry editor Lisa Gorton, Lachlan Brown and Bella Li from more than 300 submitted for judging. Another very special inclusion in this issue is ‘If These Halls Could Talk’ – a set of 10 creative responses to place and community in collaboration with Tasmania’s Ten Days on the Island festival. We hope you enjoy this virtual literary trip around the island along with stories, essays, poems and art from many remarkable Australian creatives.

    Australia is the fourth biggest country in the world for QAnon social media content and discussion, and its fans are a wide ranging group, from celebrity chef Pete Evans to federal MP's like George Christensen. Margaret Simons wonders what brings them all together, why ideas like the theories promoted by QAnon have appeal and how social media and the collapse of much traditional journalism has fuelled the breakdown of a coherent idea of 'the public'.
