We welcome writing that is experimental, poetic and peculiar; writing that treats language as a material and a technology. We work with the internet as a found object and understand the online site as a live event.
We are interested in writing as choreography, craft, performance, art.
Writing that explores the potential of language to be, not only to be about.
Writing that is a sensory experience, not simply read, but felt.
Although we are interested in writing about and around performance, this is not a space for reviewing. We are interested in writing in the key of reflection, not criticism. Writing as a practice of attention and a translation of experience.
Something Other began in 2014 as a funded research and development project (via Arts Council England’s Grant for the Arts). As it continues, we are interested in discovering new financial models for supporting and developing art and writing. Unfortunately, the reality of this at present is that we are unfunded and unable to pay any contributors, including ourselves.
We read all submissions. Please don’t be alarmed if it takes us some time to get back to you.
We welcome submissions to each of the sections on our website:
- Chapters – themed, quarterly publications. Call outs for each chapter are published here, three months before the Chapter launch.
- In Response – timely responses to current affairs.
- Histories – creative histories that inspire us. Please follow the format of the histories we have already published.
- Library of Unfinished Texts – for the writing abandoned over time.
If you would like to submit one of these, or something other, for inclusion, please contact us in the following ways:
