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 fromglasgowtosaturn@glasgow.ac.uk.

Issue 47 Lift Off!

Dear Readers,

We are delighted to bring you Issue 47 of From Glasgow to Saturn, which also marks the return of the journal to print after two years of existing solely online (much like us!) We would like to thank all of the wonderful and talented contributors who made this issue possible. We hope you love this issue as much as we do. Enjoy!

Issue 46: ready to launch!

After a long old lockdown, we’re very excited to say there’s finally just 24 hours to go until Issue 46 launches! Packed with precise, astute, creative work, it’s a collection of beautiful pieces which we hope will take you on a journey above the clouds.

Come join us in celebrating our wonderful contributors – there’s still time to get your hands on a free ticket to the Zoom launch party tomorrow evening. You can register through the Eventbrite link below.

We look forward to seeing you in the Zoom room where we’ll lift a virtual glass, hear readings from our Issue 46 contributors, and maybe even open up the floor for a wee open mic at the end.

See you there!
