Abstract: This chapter explores the ways in which the literary features of The Home and The BP Magazine played a small but significant role in introducing their readers to Australian writers and their work in an era when the publishing industry in this country was still profoundly underdeveloped. These magazines situated Australian writers amid contemporary authors and books from Britain, America, and elsewhere, and discussed their work in ways that positioned them within the currents of international modernity. Viewing these quality magazines in terms of their target readerships, and for the ways books and authors were discussed within their pages, affords different perspectives on the canonical Australian writers presented in their pages alongside international authors of their day. Further, reading interwar magazines for their affirmative relationships to Australian writers also provides ways of considering authors in relation to their own contemporaneity, including emerging models of modern literary fame adapted from overseas.
