Liminal x Writers SA Writing Commissions

Submission period: 1 September–1 October, 2021

Writers SA and Liminal magazine welcome fiction and non-fiction pitches from both emerging and established Asian-Australian writers who live in South Australia. Selected works responding to the theme of Haunt will be published online, in a collection of Asian-Australian excellence that sees Liminal’s first South Australian series, to be published in 2022.

Alongside these commissions, Liminal will facilitate a mentorship for two emerging editors, who will work with editors Cher Tan and Elizabeth Flux for hands-on experience editing our South Australian series.

If your pitch is successful, the editorial mentorship and writing commissions will be remunerated.

Liminal x Writers SA Writing Commissions 2022

Call For Fiction & Non-Fiction Pitches

Led by Cher Tan & Elizabeth Flux, alongside two emerging editors.

What spectres linger? What superstitions appear in the day to day?  Whether it be ghosts of people or ideas, experiences that cause ripples through lives and generations, places you return to again and again, we want to hear what ‘haunt’ means to you.

The Liminal writing commissions call for fiction and non-fiction writers to send through a pitch of their best ideas. We are looking for work that touches on the theme of Haunt, in the broadest ways possible; you are welcome to take the theme and split it apart, interrogate it, or turn it inside out. We welcome work from both emerging and established Asian-Australian writers.

Writers will be paid $600 each, for their piece in the Liminal x Writers SA series.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Applicants must live in, or have a strong relationship to, South Australia, and identify as Asian-Australian.
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
