Writing in Practice: Submissions
Submissions for Volume 3 are currently being peer reviewed, and feedback will be given by early October 2016. Volume 3 editors are Craig Batty, Helena Blakemore and Shelagh Weeks.
Submissions to Volume 4 are now welcome, though no consideration will be given to work submitted until Volume 3 is published, early in 2017.
We are seeking articles that explore the art of imaginative writing of all kinds, from an authorial perspective, highlighting and evolving current academic thinking and practice. Creative Writing itself is welcomed when integral to an article.
Submissions should be in the region of 4000–10,000 words, and include an abstract of up to 200 words.
Before submitting your work, please ensure that you read the style guide, downloadable to the right. Submissions that ignore these guidelines may be ignored.
Submit your work using the online system below.
The deadline for submissions to Volume 4 is 5pm (GMT) on 16 June 2017.
The aim of this journal is to encourage research in the field of Creative Writing. We recognize that this research is principally undertaken through the act of creating. Creative Writing academics invest knowledge and understanding into their creative practice, and use existing knowledge to help innovate and evolve their own work and the broader subject. The articulated results of this often practice-led and/or practice-based research demonstrate and develop existing subject knowledge.
We seek scholarly articles about practice and process that contextualize, reflect on and respond to existing knowledge and understanding in the form of poetics and/or exegesis. Creative Writing itself is welcome when integral to an article. While we also welcome critical examinations of the international history and pedagogy of Creative Writing, such work must evidence a wide-reading and contextualization of the existing literature, and make a significant and well-articulated contribution to knowledge in those fields.
