Reading & Writing is an open access, peer reviewed inter–disciplinary and inter–professional scholarly journal that explores how literacy is defined, enacted and promoted in a range of institutional, socio–cultural and disciplinary contexts', particularly within Africa and other developing countries.

The journal publishes original articles that provoke debate, explores issues and posit solutions about literacy interventions, practices and education. It focusses on and relates to transnational and translocal literacies associated with immigrants and mobile people in African settings. The aim is to design literacy practices in education to stimulate community based socio–economic transformation and development in Africa.
