For this issue of Axon: Creative Explorations we are interested in manuscripts that take on the big issues of the day. Natural, environmental and epidemiological disasters are among the instigators of this issue, but so too are questions of social, economic and environmental ethics, the place of creative practice in contemporary culture (including in cultural and higher education institutions), and the capacity of creativity and creative engagements to intervene in and help remedy individual and collective crises. 

We accept:

  • scholarly essay up to 6,000 words
  • manifesto or diatribe/rant up to 750 words
  • photo essays incorporating a contextualising statement of up to 500 words (send up to 12 images, and the editors will make a selection from those images)
  • creative essay incorporating poetry, short fictional prose, images, sound, up to 4000 words; attach a contextualising statement of up to 500 words
