Issue 21 Online Now

Dear Readers,

It is with great excitement that we present Issue 21 of From Glasgow to Saturn for your reading enjoyment. This contains a selection of prose and poetry from the various talents of Lewis Irvine, Jenny Kannellopoulou, Ian Hunter, Lucy Cheseldine, Nasim Marie Jafry, Cila Warncke, Jim Ferguson, Craig Steele, Katy Ewing, Mark Fraser, George Craig, Marise Morse, Iain Maloney, Angela Blacklock-Brown, Patrick Holloway, JoAnne McKay and Megan Primrose.

To download your free copy of the magazine, visit here.

This is our largest selection of work to date; the poetry takes us from Glasgow to Istanbul, and the prose moves between the politically-correct madness of the present to a dystopian not-too-distant future. We have pieces from familiar faces and brand spanking new contributors, far-flung alumni and first year undergraduates. We hope you find something to your taste.

Many thanks to those who submitted work for our consideration. We are continuously intrigued and impressed by Glasgow University’s students and alumni, and thrive on the quality being produced.

We are beginning work on Issue 22, due out next month, which will be out last issue as editors. We hope you can join us in helping to produce a suitably excellent final hurrah, and welcome the new editorial board who will carry From Glasgow to Saturn into the new academic year.

Feel free to say hello on facebook, twitter and of course via email. Please send us your most high quality stories and verses for next month’s publication; without submissions we are nothing, and this is your magazine – make of it what you will.

Alan, Nick and Sheila
