The Writing Platform offers a unique environment to publish academic writing that focuses on non-traditional research outputs and non-traditional research methods.
We publish at intersection between technology and writing and support sharing knowledge that is underrepresented in traditional academic publishing. TWP connects you with your community of scholars and provides the capacity for high impact publishing outside academia. Contributors include well-known writers and thinkers such as Margaret Atwood, Philip Hensher and Naomi Alderman, and industry heavyweights like Porter Anderson and Richard Nash.
Academic publishing is competitive; it’s an environment which does not tend to support works in progress or papers about creative practice and practice-based research. Publishing with TWP facilitates finding new collaborators or developing articles for further significant scholarship. The Editors of TWP encourage the submission of short academic research papers that are accessible to a more general audience of writers and artists, across a broad range of subject areas where practice intersects with digital technologies.
We welcome pitches for articles based on your own research, short critical essays on theoretical developments in the field and reflexive praxis, with a word length between 1000 and 2500. If you are interested in submitting a paper for us to consider for this Research page, please contact hello at thewritingplatform.com with a short description or abstract. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
