Now in its second series, HEAT is published from the Writing & Society Research Group at the University of Western Sydney, and shares its commitment to contemporary Australian literature and publishing, the accessible and interesting presentation of scholarly research, and a wide-ranging exploration of the social power of writing.
As both a magazine and a book, HEAT is designed to travel, across academic boundaries, across literary categories, across languages and cultures. It offers variety in a single volume, poetry and fiction, essays and reviews, art and photography. It shares these goals, and this sense of the diversity of literary genres, with the prize-winning Giramondo imprint, with which it has a close association
The new series HEAT is edited by Ivor Indyk and Fiona Wright and designed by Harry Williamson. The HEAT website is designed and updated by Jessie Lymn. HEAT is supported by the Literature Board of the Australia Council, the University of Western Sydney, Sydney Grammar School and Arts NSW.
