We publish two long essays per year and host a public debate with the authors in March and June. A third issue of the New Platform Papers contains the talks from our annual authors’ convention, where we invite all our authors to come together to reflect on the current state of the arts. All three issues are published as a single paperback volume at the end of the year.

Proposals for essays or other ideas are welcome any time of the year. The flat fee for an essay of 15,000 words is $14,250 which is paid at a rate of 95c per word (excluding gst).
