Meniscus literary journal

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Meniscus is an online, free access literary journal published by the Australasian Association of Writing Programs (AAWP). The editors and advisory board are based in Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and welcome submissions from writers anywhere in the world.

Meniscus publishes high quality, innovative poetry, short fiction, and creative essays in English, or in other languages with a good parallel translation. Meniscus publishes two issues a year: in April, and in October.

The Australian Copyright Agency Cultural Fund provides funding for the journal with the following proviso: that in each of the two issues each year (2017, 2018 and 2019) the writers of the best prose piece and the best poetry piece published will each receive $AUD1,000. At present, we regret, we cannot guarantee funding for any other contributors.
