Writing from Below


Writing from Below is an online, open-access, peer-reviewed gender, sexuality and diversity studies journal.

Broadly interdisciplinary in scope, we provide a forum for new and innovative 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, as well as work that cannot be easily placed, in any style, genre, format, or medium. We welcome both traditional academic research as well as less conventional creative forms of research, and all things between. We welcome both academic and creative explorations (theory is art and art, theory, after all), and specifically encourage scholarly experimentation.

The journal provides a particular venue for the work of postgraduate students and early career researchers.

Writing from Below accepts submissions all year round. We publish two issues annually, in March and September.
