Submissions for So Fi Zine #9 are open now

What is at stake in the stories we tell? What places do they come from? Where do we hope they will go?

With Sujatha Fernandes, So Fi Zine #9 invites creative pieces that open new spaces of expression. Play with voice and place. Consider the conditions under which stories are told. Read her reflections on why we need connective stories of depth and complexity here.

So Fi Zine is a sociological fiction zine for arts-based research, creative sociology, and art inspired by social science. The zine publishes short stories, poetry, photography, photo essays, cartoons, and other creative works. Edition #9 will be published in mid 2021.
