Focus and Scope

CINDER publishes original research that thinks, theorises and articulates interventions and emerging directions in creative textual practices of all kinds and related scholarship, as well as research in creative writing pedagogy.

It offers a forum for original research articles of approximately 4,000 words from higher degree students and early career researchers (within 2 years of doctoral submission). These may also be published alongside longer commissioned feature articles from, or interviews with, experts in the field or resonant fields.

CINDER's managing Editors mentor and support the Issue Editors, who may be current doctoral candidates, recent graduates or other active, emerging researchers in the field.

CINDER is part of the suite of publications of the AAWP (Australasian Association of Writing Programs), which also includes Meniscus and TEXT journals.
