Issue 17 Online Now

The editors are pleased to announce publication of the 17th issue of From Glasgow to Saturn. We have put together what we feel is an excellent collection of short fiction and poetry by present and past staff and students, including Alan Bissett, Rodge Glass, Anneliese Mackintosh, Raymond Soltysek, Duncan Muir, Julie Martis, Mukul Dahal, Paul Abbott, Amy Anderson, Miles Beard and Patrick Holloway.

You can read online, or download your free copy, here.

Many thanks to those of you who submitted work. The standards of writing were suitably impressive, so if your piece did not find a home in this issue, please do try again in the future. Work has begun already on Issue 18, which we hope to have ready in the first week of December. We’re open to submissions and read on an ongoing basis.

Happy reading!

From Glasgow to Saturn is looking forward to receiving submissions of prose fiction, poetry and essays from staff, alumni, and of course current students of the University of Glasgow. You don’t even have to be on the university’s Creative Writing program to get involved. Let’s see what tomorrow’s doctors and lawyers have to contribute, our philosophers and our sociologists.

This is your publication. If you have anything to add to the website, or want to get involved, please get in touch. From Glasgow to Saturn should be a varied, fascinating and eclectic publication for all involved with the university, so please submit your best work, read the issues and spread the word.

From Glasgow to Saturn is named after the collection of poems by Edwin Morgan, who sadly passed away earlier this year. As a tribute to his legacy at the university, we’ve included a page dedicated to his life and work.
