Issue 34 is here!

Thank you for being patient with us. We’ve had a bit of a busy few months, but we’re delighted to present our third and final issue. We feel it’s a strong representation of the amazing new writing in Scotland today. Have a read and let us know what you think.

It’s been wonderful acting as editors for From Glasgow to Saturn. We’ll definitely be watching future developments with interest.


Happy reading, and happy summer!

Issue 33, a collaboration, and a party

March 5, 2014 Comments Off

Issue 33 is here!

Our beautiful cover was drawn by Weaam Sperinck, a graduate of Glasgow’s School of Art.

Our new design, as well as the first ever print copy of From Glasgow to Saturn, was put together by David Rae.

Thank you to both of them for their excellent illustrations.

We will be holding a party to launch this issue at The Bank Street Bar and Cafe on Monday 10th March.  We hope to see you there, where you’ll be able to pick up one of the aforementioned print copies.

And, finally, submissions for issue 34 are now open. We’re looking for something specific with this issue: we are focusing on the Commonwealth. Hit us with everything you’ve got- we want poetry, we want prose, we want essays and experiments. We want positive, negative and everything in between. If you’d like to be considered for Commonwealth Voices as well, please do let us know. Details can be found here.

Happy reading!

Call for Submissions: Writing & Art

September 16, 2013 Comments Off

With another academic year upon us, submissions for issue 32 are now open. 

We love to feature the best emerging artists in From Glasgow to Saturn, and we are looking for illustrations, graphic art or photography for our covers. This is a great opportunity to publicise your work; our website has had over 30,000 hits in total. The artwork dimensions would need to be A4 size, 300 dpi. 

Submissions are also open for writing. We’re looking for beautiful, well-constructed stories, poems and essays. The deadline for submissions of both writing and artwork is Friday 18th October. While we are looking forward to reading each and every submission, themed or not, we would especially like to see writing (and artwork) with the theme of Hallowe’en- think spooky, spine-tingling, and shuddersome. 

For details of how to submit please visit

And before submitting, please familiarise yourself with the magazine by visiting where a full archive of all past issues is available.

As well as providing a platform for established writers, this year’s magazines will also give new writers the opportunity to make their publishing debuts, and we exist to help these writers shine.

We look forward to receiving your work.

Issue 31 is now available!

July 16, 2013 Comments Off

Dear readers,

We’re delighted to announce that Issue 31 of From Glasgow to Saturn is here. You can get your free copy by simply clicking here and downloading.

It’s the final issue from the current editorial team, and we’re delighted to sign off in style with an issue containing some fantastic writing.

As well as an exclusive extract from the Sceptre Prize-winning Keeper of Secrets by Pauline Lynch, there is a strong focus on poetry in this issue with themes of travel, thwarted love, and loss.

It has been a pleasure to serve as editors of From Glasgow to Saturn and we would like to say that the continued support of our readers had enabled From Glasgow to Saturn to endure and expand over these 31 issues, and now we will join you in looking forward to the new editors’ debut issue later in the year.

But for now, so long, and thanks for reading. We’ll sign off with some words from William Faulkner.

“Read, read, read. Read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.”

Enjoy the issue!
