Postgraduate students at the University of Roehampton have launched a creative writing and literature peer-reviewed journal.

The journal is the first postgraduate journal to be published by Fincham Press and is titled RoundTable. It is edited by University of Roehampton PhD researchers Denise Saul, Sinéad Moriarty and Anne Malewski.

The journal is a biannual peer-reviewed publication which will publish critical reviews, analysis pieces and creative writing from postgraduates in creative writing, children’s writing and English literature.

There is also an interview with recently retired professor of children’s literature David Rudd, speaking about his own academic journey and his reflections on children’s literature in higher education.

The open-access journal will accept submissions from all countries.
