Peril Magazine

Online Magazine

Peril is an online magazine focused on issues of Asian Australian arts and culture. We have been sharing stories since 2006.

Peril showcases new literature and stories through diverse forms, including poetry, drama, translations, creative writing, memoir, essays, biographical profiles, interviews and other structures. We are also interested in critical and reflective writing about the visual arts, music, performance, theatre, film and other cultural arts practices. To understand these practices, we profile leading and emerging arts practitioners, particularly Asian Australian practitioners. We foster dialogue and conversation around issues of diverse cultural production and news issues of Asian Australian interest by supporting creative non-fiction, citizen journalism and opinion pieces.

Peril is an active contributor to the Australian literary and creative arts communities, hosting and participating in a range of workshops, panels, seminars and events that look to engage the community in cultural production that is representative of the diversity of the Australian community and relevant in a globally interconnected world.

Peril welcomes contributions from all, but will prioritise Asian-Australian and contributors of colour or contributors of diverse backgrounds as relevant to our readership and themes. Peril is inclusive of people of diverse sexualities and genders.

Peril acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the original owners and custodians of the land that we live and work on.
