Writing Around Sound is a print journal that engages with audio culture and sonic art in New Zealand. Audio culture, sound art and their concerns and contexts are employed as both a focus and a point of departure of the journal’s content, which not only includes the textual, but embraces the visual and audible (via an online audio component).

Launched in October 2015 by the CSSA, it has now become a twice-yearly publication edited by Richard Keys and Jo Burzynska and guided by an editorial board of sonic arts academics, artists and writers from all the main centres in New Zealand.
