We are currently accepting submissions for un Magazine 14.2, co-edited by Rosie Isaac and Elena Gomez, to be published November 2020.
"ANTI– is a prefix. How can a word, a meaning, become its opposite? Turn against itself? And in what ways does it do this: semantic, political, chemical, relational, physical? We are interested in the position. A position that sits in the negative. What does it mean to sit against something? To create against something? What are we against? How do we make art against the world?
But also, there is its sound-twin: Ante. A different kind of prefix that marks a temporal position, before. What happens when we consider these alongside each other, as ANTI/ANTE? We are interested in this duality as a launching point, and seek responses that trouble or meditate on the distinctions between ANTI- and ANTE-."
un Projects also publishes quick turnaround independent art reviews from near and far on un Extended. Writers, artists, curators and galleries, get in touch if you’d like to contribute or let us know about your upcoming exhibitions and projects for review.
un Magazine publishes essays, interviews, artworks, creative commentary, audio and video works and everything in between. We are open to experimental approaches within printed and online formats, with a focus on independent art practice and ARIs. We pay all contributors, with fees ranging from $150 to $450 per piece.
un Magazine hopes to publish a diverse range of voices. We always encourage submissions from writers and artists who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, as queer and/or trans, as having a disability, people of colour, and people of all genders.

un Magazine Mentorship Program
un Magazine values its role in providing editorial support and mentorship to new and emerging writers and editors. We offer one-to-one mentorship for a small number of contributors. The Mentorship Program offers the benefit of working with a member of the Editorial Advisory Committee in the drafting and development of your writing for publication.
