Submissions for  So Fi Zine Edition #4 are now closed.

So Fi is a sociological fiction zine for arts-based research, creative sociology, and art inspired by social science. We accept short stories, poetry, photography, photo essays, cartoons, and other creative works. Edition #4 will be published in November 2018.

Edition #4 is inspired by a golden thread that runs through Raewyn Connell’s extensive body of work – ‘critique is inadequate: one needs to show alternatives.’ Critiquing and radically re-thinking social structures and social science, Connell inspires us to scrutinise power and challenge supremacy. For this edition, we are looking for creative pieces that imaginatively illuminate social alternatives.

Edition #4 will include a special drabble section to be curated by Raewyn Connell. Drabbles are short stories of exactly 100 words – send yours on any of the following themes: southern theory, masculinities, neoliberalism, schools and social justice.
