Meanjin 48

About

Meanjin is a forum for reflection, speculation, opinion and fresh creativity in various literary and visual genres. Emerging writers and graphic artists appear alongside established ones. The general style and tone of the articles is conversational rather than narrowly academic. Avoiding technical specialisation and specialist language, they seek to appeal to a broad educated audience of all generations.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
