Melbourne Literary iPhone App Launched


For those who think reading is cool.

Melbourne is a cultural city. Melbournians like reading, sipping coffee, and wearing black. All stereotypes sure, but just to prove there must be some truth to it, Melbourne is the only UNESCO City of Literature in Australia. To celebrate it? Melbourne writer Narrelle M Harris collaborated with Sutro Media to create a literary lovers dream iPhone app.

It’s called Literary Melbourne, and for $3.99 you can have the literary world in your pocket. You can use it to find bookshops, literary locations and literature inclined cafes as well as read up about literary events, books set in Melbourne, and authors. You can also browse by category: cafes and bars, poetry, publishers, queer lit etc etc. Which means not only will you know what’s going on, but your reading lists will be up to date with the things you like. 

Available directly from the App store on iPhones and through iTunes at
