FUSE publishes writing that engages the relationship between political issues and contemporary culture. We commission reports, esssays, socially engaged artworks and publish artist’s writings and folios. We are committed to presenting culturally diverse viewpoints. We seek writing in which strong opinions are developed through informed analysis. FUSE is a magazine, not an academic journal; our audience is well educated & diverse, so we seek generous and stimulating writing with many entry points.
We accept unsolicited proposals for reviews on an ongoing basis at content [AT] fusemagazine [DOT] org. Open calls for reports, articles and projects for upcoming themed issues will appear on this page. Please consult our submission guide [PDF] before submitting.
