Vibewire call for papers

My zine friend Maddie has asked me to spread around a call for papers from Vibewire. So here goes:

What's your big idea?

Interface Call for Ideas


Vibewire is looking for Australia's next generation of public thinkers to contribute to Interface, our annual magazine anthology of new writing on contemporary social, political and cultural issues.


If you're aged between 16 and 30 and have something innovative, insightful and engaging to say, we want to hear from you.


Send us a proposal of no more than 500 words (shorter is fine) outlining your idea, why it's important and why you're the best person to write about it.


Selected entries will be developed into longer, 1000-3000 word essays, articles and stories with the guidance of some of the country's leading young writers.


The scope of what you can write about is almost limitless - just keep it interesting. Submissions will be evaluated on originality, broad public appeal and expression by a panel of judges including Julianne Schultz ( Griffith Review), Tony Moore (Pluto Press), Julia Baird (Sydney Morning Herald) and Vibewire's Rachel Hills and Tom Dawkins.


Submissions close Monday November 20, at 5pm EST. For more information on the project, what we're looking for and how to submit, go to
