HEAT, Giramondo's literary magazine, welcomes submissions of fiction, essays, hybrid forms and translated works.
Our intention is to publish the best work being written in Australia and internationally, gathering innovative literary perspectives across borders. HEAT is published six times a year in a slim, intimate format, that throws sharp focus on the work of the featured authors.
Writers looking to submit to HEAT should familiarise themselves with prior issues of the magazine and consider subscribing.
Please know, we do not publish reviews or opinion pieces, at least in the conventional sense. We are, however, interested in writing that engages with other writers and their works. We’re also intrigued by obsessions and curiosities, lost or secret histories, literary quests and writing that brings research to life. We encourage writing which gives full rein to the author’s voice, without the restriction of a word limit.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept material that has appeared elsewhere in the English language.
HEAT is closed to poetry submissions at this time.
