Papers can range in length from 2.9k words to 4k max (including footnotes/endnotes not references)

Papers submitted and polished for CINDER can also become longer 6k+ papers, extended and developed for submission to TEXT, after further research. (They will have a better chance…)

We will prioritise strong papers from the 2017 AAWP conference at Flinders, however, if you did not attend, have work, and are desperate to be included, then woo us ; )

The issue will riff of the conference title “Climates of Change” in some way… but differently…

Feel welcome. We look forward to your papers.

Contributions for issue artwork also welcome.. Tell your artsy buddies.

Kind regards,
