Journal of Writing in Creative Practice (Journal)

ISSN 17535190 , ONLINE ISSN 17535204

The Journal of Writing in Creative Practice is the official organ of the Writing Purposefully in Art and Design (Writing PAD) network. It offers art and design institutions an arena in which to explore and develop the notion of thinking through writing as a parallel to visual discourse in art and design practice. The double-blind peer-reviewed journal aims to extend the debates to all national and international higher educational art and design institutions.

This journal is designed to foster new relations, strengthen existing ones and offer a new space in which received models of writing in creative practice can be explored and surpassed. By questioning the purposes of writing in creative practice we invite a rich variety of aims, approaches and styles. Hence, where some journal issues are likely to be characterised by images rather than words, others may adopt a strongly practice-oriented, philosophical, critical or even fiction-based approach. Whether you are a practitioner, a theorist or a conference organizer wishing to guest-edit a special edition, please contact us. Ultimately, we are interested in writing that functions ‘as’, or that operates ‘for’, or ‘in’ practice, whether this practice is art, craft, designing or performance. This raises issues of procedure. As academics, we are accustomed to an individual-centred assessment system designed to monitor and uphold ‘standards’, rather than help us to co-create a better world. We welcome good writers, but we also wish to support practitioners whose quality of thought surpasses their current skills as authors. Thus in cultivating a co-authoring network, our aim is to replace our current double-blind reviewing system. We are aware of the risks this may bring. Please let us know what you think.
