Harts Online – Call for Articles


We would like to encourage new submissions for the Harts Online stories section. We want this to become a vibrant space for PGRs in Arts and Humanities to share their work, experiment and reflect on their research journeys. As we are shifting increasingly online, this will hopefully be a useful tool to keep the community connected. 

We are looking for submissions between 400-1000 words. 

There are loosely two kinds of stories that we are looking for:

Research Articles: articles that reflect on your PhD research, projects, methods, manifestos or creative writing responding to the themes of your research. 

PGR Experience: we are also welcoming articles that reflect on experiences of PhD study, for example ‘going to your first conference’, ‘publishing a journal article’ or ‘writing up’. 

Writing an informal article for Harts Online will hopefully give you a chance to reflect and develop, as well as be creative and experiment with form and content. Submission will be informal and supportive to reflect this; there will not be a formal review process but we are on hand to talk through ideas, and will check through your submission before it is published.

We also warmly welcome things that you have already written and have published informally elsewhere, for example on a research/practice blog. 

For some more ideas and detailed information you can refer to our article guidelines here:

If you have any questions, ideas for an article or even something ready to go please get in contact with Sarah-Joy Ford: sarah-joy.ford@stu.mmu.ac.uk
