Editorial Focus

We encourage all topics related to HIV/AIDS, including international perspectives, personal accounts, historical perspectives, litarary criticism/reviews, and personal responses to HIV-related art or artists. We also welcome English translations of work that is unpublished or previously published in a language other than English. See our Submissions page for further information.

Tips From the Editor

We publish everything from sonnets to science fiction, and we are always on the lookout for fresh work in all genres that reflects current realities of living with HIV, whether the writers or characters identify as negative or positive, as world citizens, or as members of specific diverse communities. Although A&U has published several moving and insightful accounts from the first decades of the epidemic, we are excited by work that challenges older narratives about illness and reflects instead a complex and contemporary global reality.

Annual Christopher Hewitt Award given in July/August for poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and drama. Deadline in June--for this and general info, visit our website’s Submissions page.
