Submissions for Issue 50 now OPEN!

We are thrilled to announce we are now accepting submissions for Issue 50!

Submission gates will be open from February 24th through March 24th at midnight.

Please read our submission guidelines before submitting.

While there is no theme (and we encourage all submissions), the Editors are particularly interested in work speaking to or inspired by Edwin Morgan, as this year also marks the 50th anniversary of Morgan’s collection From Glasgow to Saturn after which our journal is named.

Fresher’s Week Event with From Glasgow to Saturn

As we’re getting ready to open up submissions for our next issue, we’ve decided to have a little event to get to know you all during fresher’s week! Expect collage making, wine, nice conversation and a chill atmosphere. It’s an excellent opportunity to get in the creative spirit before submissions open, and to meet fellow creatives in a low-pressure environment.

We’ll be meeting on Wednesday 14th of September between 6 PM and 7.45 PM, at our usual venue for launch parties, Dram! We hope to see you there!

Issue 48 Launch RESCHEDULED

Due to issues with the previous venue, we’ve had to make a last minute reschedule and relocation of the launch of issue 48! We’ll now be holding the launch at Dram! on Monday 30th May at 7PM. Please note that due to the change in venue, we will no longer be having a BYOB policy but alcohol will be available for purchase. We hope this won’t impact anyone’s ability to attend and we look forward to seeing you there!

Issue 48 is Ready to Launch!

We’re happy to announce we’ve finally finalised a date and location for the launch of issue 48! Everyone is invited, and we’d love to see you there even if you didn’t contribute this time.

The launch will take place on the 28th of May at 7PM, running for as long as we’d like to keep going! We will be at Ushi’s Coffee Corner, 182 W Regent St, Glasgow G2 4PQ. There will be no fee to attend the event, but you will likely be asked to make a voluntary donation to support Ushi’s. If you want to consume alcohol, you can bring your own bottle and pay the corkage fee, which will range from £2 to £6. Every contributor will receive a free copy of the issue, and there will also be other copies available for purchase during the event so that friends and family can buy their own.

If you have any accessibility requirements or concerns about attending the launch, please contact us and we’ll try to work with the venue to ensure you’re properly supported and able to attend. Any further questions, email
