Backstory is a Swinburne University journal open to all writers of history. We are interested in telling stories from the past, and in particular voices that may have been overlooked. We publish fiction, poetry, non-fiction, interviews, reviews, essays and academic articles. Stories do not have to centre around people, they can also be focused on object, time or place. We have aimed to create an online and print-on-demand publication that is modern, diverse and open-minded at the same time as featuring content that is richly rooted in the past. We are a historical journal with an eye on the future.
