n-SCRIBE 2020

n-SCRIBE is Darebin Arts’ annual literary magazine that publishes writers with a connection to the City of Darebin. 

This edition is called n-SCRIBE 2020 because, like everything else, n-SCRIBE will be a bit different this year. We are focusing on publication and distribution across a range of platforms. A few writers will be invited to read their work for video and/or audio publication alongside the digital magazine!  

Each writer will receive a fee of $100 for work that is published in n-SCRIBE 2020. Work of all styles and genres is welcome including but not limited to prose, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, short story, journalism, creative non-fiction and memoir. For more info about what is published, have a look at past editions of n-SCRIBE here

Submissions are reviewed and selected for publication by the n-SCRIBE Working Group using a blind submission process. This means the Working Group receive no names or personal information about the writer and evaluate the work on its merits alone. There is the opportunity to provide the Working Group with insight into your lived experience, background or personal connection to the subject matter of your work if you would like to do so but only if you would like to do so as this is not a prerequisite for your work. 

The n-SCRIBE Working Group is made up of local writers, editors and publishers, supported by industry expert Managing Editor, Bridget Caldwell-Bright.  

Bridget Caldwell-Bright is a Jingili and Mudburra writer and freelance editor based in Melbourne. She has previously worked for Hardie Grant Books, Mascara Literary Review and The Lifted Brow. She was also previously co-editor for Archer Magazines First Nations Edition and managing editor for Blak Brow, a Black Women’s Collective edition of The Lifted Brow.
