Southpaw: Writing from the Global South

Southpaw is a new literary journal of writing from the global south. It is dedicated to the idea of 'south-south' dialogue: to conversations between writers, artists and readers about life away from the metropolitan centres of power and culture. This literary left hook from the south features fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, essays, reviews and images.

Southpaw issue 1 is focused through the theme of displacement. Writers from South Africa, Indigenous Australia, Philippines, Colombia, Suriname, Angola, Indigenous Japan, China, the Horn of Africa, Tunisia, New Zealand and non-indigenous Australia write fascinating stories and reflect on home and eviction, migration and asylum seeking, cultural diplomacy and political oppression, cross cultural dealings and cultural reclamation.

Donna has a piece in this exciting new publication. The website is still under construction but enquires can be sent to or Southpaw 12 Mark Street North Fitzroy VIC Australia 3068.
