Working with Indigenous material and/or Indigenous artists
Please read this before submitting poems or manuscripts to MPU.
MPU follows the Ethical Publishing Guidelines developed by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS).
MPU encourages all contributors to MPU publications to use the Australia Council for the Arts’ Protocols for Working with Indigenous Artists as a guide to best practice in the creative arts.
MPU seeks to have writing on Indigenous literature and/or creative works about Indigenous culture and heritage commented upon by relevant Indigenous bodies and/or Indigenous writer(s).
We also take note of the comprehensive policy implemented by Cordite on this issue.
We'd like to acknowledge the work of Cordite Publishing Inc in putting these guidelines together.
