Issue 27 now online

We’re delighted, if a little sad, to present our last issue as editors of From Glasgow to Saturn, as we will shortly be handing over to the new editorial team.

Here in  Issue 27  you will find entertaining and thought-provoking work  from the talented creative minds of James Carson, Alan Gillespie, John Horn, Cathy McSporran, Sheila Millar, Louis Pilard, Andreea Ros and Fiona Wilson. We’re also delighted to have captured a Quick View from poet and roofer William Letford. We’ll say no more by way of introduction. Just enjoy.

All that remains now is for us to say a huge thank you to all our contributors and readers, and to invite you all to please give an enthusiastic welcome to From Glasgow to Saturns new editors, Kevin Scott, Calum Maclean and Shaunagh Jones, who will be announcing their plans for the autumn in due course.

Happy reading and goodbye!

Issue 26 (themed issue): now open for submissions!

Calling all writers!

You may not have managed to make the deadline for Issue 25, but how about getting some poetry or prose in for Issue 26? It’s quite an exciting issue, as it will be our first EVER themed issue. We think our theme: TRANSFORMATION offers a lot of scope for interpretation and creativity.

The deadline for this issue is Monday 2nd April- so start scribbling away now! (Please see our submissions page for details on how to submit).

We’re looking forward to seeing the work our theme will inspire!

It’s been a long time coming, but we finally got our act together, booked a room and chatted up some lovely writers. A few bits and pieces still to be finalised, but we couldn’t wait to share the news that we’ve bagged a double delight of readings from both  Alan Bissett and Zoë Strachan.  And that for lovers of all things poetic, the wonderful  JL Williams will be presenting some of her amazing work, along with Richie McCaffery, whose poetry recently featured in Issue 24 of From Glasgow to Saturn.

More details, directions and RSVP arrangements to follow shortly, but get that date in your diaries!

FGTS hosts CW Reading Party

From Glasgow to Saturn was asked to host a special Reading Party last week, to welcome the Creative Writing Programme’s new students. The students were treated to fabulous readings from current students, staff & recent graduates (a huge thank you to Elizabeth Reeder, Kerri McLawlin, Emily Munro, Alan Gillespie, Bethany Anderson & Laura Marney).  The evening also featured music from singer-songwriter and GU graduate Jo Mango, and we even made cake.  Thank you to all the CW students who came along and made it such a great evening.  We had fun, so watch this space for details of another FGTS reading party later in the term for all you lovely subscribers and contributors.
