Issue 31 open for submissions


We’re delighted to announced that Issue 31 of From Glasgow to Saturn is now open for submissions!

As ever, we’re looking for the very best writing that the University of Glasgow’s students, staff and alumni have to offer.

Over the course of the current team’s editorship we’ve published a wide range of prose, poetry and essays from some of the biggest names in Scottish writing along with work by many fantastic up and coming new writers.

The work we’ve published is an indication of the incredible standards of Scottish writing at the moment and we don’t expect Issue 31 to be any different. We’re looking for writing that challenges and provokes, dazzles, shocks and above all entertains!

The closing date for submissions is 9th June.

Prose fiction – One piece. 3,000 words is the upper limit, but we welcome much shorter pieces also. Please include a brief synopsis if you’re submitting an extract from a longer piece, such as a novel.

Poetry – You may submit up to 3 poems at a time, with a maximum total length of 120 lines.

Essays – We’re looking for lyrical essays and articles on the craft of creative writing: 1,000 words at the most.
