AAWP: Meniscus literary journal

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Australasian Association of Writing Programs (AAWP) publishes the literary journal Meniscus and the writing journal TEXT. 


Meniscus is an online, free access literary journal. 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, prose poetry, short fiction, flash fiction and creative essays in English, or in other languages with a good parallel translation. Meniscus publishes two issues a year: around April, and around October.


The Australian Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund provides funding for the journal with the following proviso: that in each of the two issues each year, for 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. 


Meniscus 2019.2 is now online, and the editors invite submissions for volume 2020.1: send us your poetry, short fiction, flash fiction, prose poetry, by 24 February 2020.
