About Us

The Channel is a progressive arts, creative and critical writing magazine and blog by and for the Sussex community. Anyone connected to Sussex – whether a student, a staff member, a visitor, a family member, an alumni or a staff member of a third party organisation that works on campus – can submit visual or written content. This includes short stories, poetry, political essays, graphic novels/comics, photography, doodles, paintings, drawings and anything in between.
