ABOUT US

About Farrago

Farrago is the student publication of the University of Melbourne. First published on 3 April 1925, it is Australia’s oldest student publication. Farrago began its life first as a weekly newspaper before transitioning into a magazine publication. Farrago now prints six editions per year as well as its annual creative writing and art anthology Above Water, and the UMSU Election Guide.

Farrago’s name, a Latin term meaning ‘mixed cattle fodder’, is drawn from the motto Quidquid agunt homines nostri farrago libelli est—“Whatever men do forms the motley subject of our page”. Today, the same rings true for Farrago: whatever students do forms the motley subject of our pages.

We publish all sorts of student work: news, poetry, prose, essays, opinion pieces, art, photography. While submissions for the editions occur throughout the year, we are always open for submissions and pitches for the online website. Please send your pitches, enquiries, and everything in between to editors@farragomagazine.com.

Acknowledgement of Country

UMSU and the Media Office are located in the city of Melbourne, on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We pay our respects to their elders—past, present and emerging—and acknowledge that the land we are on was stolen and sovereignty was never ceded. It always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
