After publishing a brilliant issue last week (a big thank you to all our lovely contributers!) we announced the theme for issue 3 which is… (drumroll please) Old and New!
We hope this theme inspires you to come up with some great stuff to submit and remember you are free to interpret the theme as you like. However please don’t be put off submitting if your work doesn’t fall under this theme as you can also submit work off-theme too. If you’re struggling to get started, why not check out our Facebook page, where we’ll be posting some of our own suggestions for pieces based on this issue’s theme.
Some general house-keeping points now. For those of you planning to write critical pieces, please use the English department’s style sheet when referencing the work of other people. Also, please submit any work to our email (firstname.lastname@example.org). In the subject field of your email please include the title of your piece and whether it is a creative, critical or hybrid submission. Submit your piece as an attachment on the email and please include a short abstract (or blurb) summing up what your work is about. (These guidelines are mainly for ease of editing and to make sure your work ends up going to the person best suited to look over it.)
Deadline for submissions: Friday 14th December to be published in Issue 3 after the holidays.
Get writing and get submitting!
Edit (15/01/13): Our editors are now busy at work editing the great submissions we’ve received for the issue – many thanks to all who’ve contributed! However, if you’re still sitting on something you’ve written, you now have until this Friday (18th January) to submit it. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for Issue 3.
