Bent Street: Australian LGBTIQA+ Art, Writing & Ideas.

ISSN 2652-6581 (Online)
ISSN 2652-659X (Print)

The Series Editor-in-Chief of Bent Street is Tiffany Jones, who is an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Studies at Macquarie University. Bent Street is published by Clouds of Magellan Press.

Three editions of Bent Street have appeared annually since 2017. In 2020 we are moving to a new biannual publishing model, with a curated midyear edition (July), as well as the regular end-of-year edition (December). The mid-year edition of Bent Street will be curated by a guest editor(s) and themed to a particular topic. We welcome suggestions and proposals for the midyear edition.

In 2020 the mid-year edition (Bent Street 4.1) will be edited by Jennifer Power, Henry von Doussa, and Tim Jones, on the theme of ‘Love from a distance: intimacy and technology’.

The end of year edition (Bent Street 4.2) presents ‘The Year in Queer’ and follows the wider interests of the LGBTIQA+ community.

Bent Street welcomes writing from the LGBTIQA+ community in the genres of short fiction, extracts from work-in-progress, essays, artwork, sketches, cartoons, memoir, play or performance scripts, poetry, spoken word, blog, letters, shopping lists, interviews … Visit our Submissions page for details.
