Expanded Field is biannual English-language journal for creative writing and image/text experimentation. Established in 2017, it publishes original and translated fiction, non-fiction, poetry, comics, and other experimental works not easily classified within genre boundaries.

Under the direction of the student-led editorial board, located at the Department of Language, Literature, and Communication at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, it offers an online and open-access platform for the exhibition of works from new to established and national to international writers and artists. For more information about how to submit your work for editorial review, please see our Submissions page.

Expanded Field is grateful for its support from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
