is a new Australian online and print journal published in Naarm/Melbourne. It is born out of a need for radical, critical thought and expression, particularly from emerging writers and artists, which challenges the catastrophic, ecocidal structures of the 21st century.
Our work emphasises not just thought, but action; not just think pieces, do pieces. We are commited to moving with intention and urgency. (Dis)solution hopes to aid us in this mission: to distinguish the false solutions—of which there are no shortage—from the genuine ones, and to dissolve what no longer serves us.


(Dis)solution publishes quarterly issues, online and in print, as well as standalone pieces online.

We want work that’s urgent, that recognizes and acts on the present. We're interested in writing that is unique and impactful, that strives for clarity, impact, and relevance without dry prose and conventions—writing with personality and energy that speaks to the challenges and possibilities of justice.

We’re primarily interested in essays, but also other mediums, with the exception of fiction.

Essay submissions can be sent as a pitch of a few hundred words that describes the concept of the work, format, and expected length, preferably with previous samples of work. Full manuscripts can also be submitted for consideration.

Essays between 800 - 4000 words are preferred. Pieces for print issues are paid at $100 for sub-1500 word pieces and $200 for 1500+ word pieces. Other mediums are varyingly paid relative to size. Online-only pieces are, at this stage at least, not paid.
