Issue 30 – Independence. Now open for submissions

We’re delighted to say that we’re now accepting submissions for Issue 30 of From Glasgow to Saturn. And we can reveal that this special issue will be dedicated to the theme of ‘independence’.

Defined as “freedom from the control, influence, support, or aid of others,” it’s an important word in today’s  Scotland, from politics to ethics, ideologies and the arts.

Writing itself is a largely solitary pursuit, so however you interpret the theme, we’d love to read your prose, poetry and essays on ‘independence’.

The deadline for submissions to Issue 30 is Sunday 3rd March.

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 submissions.

And there’s more to come this spring from From Glasgow To Saturn that we’re getting rooftop-shoutingly excited about so remember to stay tuned to our website, follow us on Twitter @Glasgow2Saturn or like our Facebook page.
