HOAX is an ongoing, artist-led curatorial project dedicated to publishing and exhibiting creative work incorporating text, without definition, as a counter-argument to the commonplace notion that contemporary art and creative writing are mutually exclusive.

Working on a submissions basis, we provide spaces in print and online to show all forms of creative work incorporating text alongside each other, without prejudice or predefined "rules" about the look, format, content or execution of the piece. Our main output is a free-of-charge, 6-monthly print publication; we also publish a new work to the front page of our site every Thursday, as well as hosting and curating sporadic events, exhibitions and side-projects.

Although anyone is welcome to submit work, we strongly concern ourselves with addressing the lack of representation of women, people of colour, LGBTQIA people, disabled people and other underrepresented people in the arts, actively striving to foster equal exposure and opportunities. We believe that by combining creativity with social justice we can not only ensure HOAX is always strong, dynamic, forward-thinking, interesting, relevant and innovative, but also that we can play our small part in making the world a fairer and more inclusive place.
