Writing from Below

Writing From Below Cover

Writing from Below is a peer-reviewed open-access interdisciplinary gender, sexuality and diversity studies journal, published by La Trobe University (Melbourne, Australia). We provide a forum for new research on gender and sexuality and the array of intersecting issues that shape their social expression. We invite submissions from as broad a range of disciplines as possible, in any publishable medium, and work that cannot be easily placed elsewhere. We welcome both traditional academic research as well as less conventional creative forms of research, and all things between, and specifically encourage scholarly experimentation. The journal provides a particular venue for the work of postgraduate students and early career researchers.

Editor Dr Stephen Abblitt will attending Queermance representing both Writing from Below and Stein and Wilde Publishing at our Meet the Authors Afternoon Tea.

Publishers, as the world knows, have long lunches, lazily spend time with their feet up reading through amazing books which people send them for free and jealously guard the gates of publishing from amazing aspiring writing talent who have at least one amazing book in them.

Publishers, as anyone in the industry knows, have found that the days of long lunches are over, that it’s harder to get talent noticed in an increasingly crowded marketplace, and wading through the ever growing slush pile in the hope of finding the next gem is both a draining and exhausting prospect. And please don’t mention delicate writer egos.

Following the success of last year’s Meet the Publishers Panel, we’re bringing along more publishers and giving you all a chance to meet, mingle chat and maybe even pitch a story or two over tea, coffee and nibbles on a casual Sunday afternoon. Book your ticket now for this limited entry event or grab a festival pass and come and meet publishers and editors from Clan Destine Press, MidnightSun Publishing, eXtasy Books, Little Raven, Fireborn Publishing, Dreamspinner Press, Wayward Ink Press, Stein & Wilde Publishing, Dark Matter Zine and Writing from Below Journal.
