JOURNAL

Journal is an online space for creative non-fiction. Featuring writing from a wide variety of people, we explore what it means to be alive today. Loss, love, labour, relationships, belonging, identity and place are themes that occur and recur as readers are taken on a journey about what makes us human.

WRITING IN BLACK by Jannali Jones

‘I set about writing what I thought people wanted to read about; a certain ‘Aboriginal’ experience that was expected from an Indigenous author.’

THE UNANTICIPATED LIFE by Tinashe Jakwa
