Submissions for Issue 50 now OPEN!

We are thrilled to announce we are now accepting submissions for Issue 50!

Submission gates will be open from February 24th through March 24th at midnight.

Please read our submission guidelines before submitting.

While there is no theme (and we encourage all submissions), the Editors are particularly interested in work speaking to or inspired by Edwin Morgan, as this year also marks the 50th anniversary of Morgan’s collection From Glasgow to Saturn after which our journal is named.

Submit here. Please direct any questions to


Call for Submissions: Writing & Art

With another academic year upon us, submissions for issue 32 are now open. 

We love to feature the best emerging artists in From Glasgow to Saturn, and we are looking for illustrations, graphic art or photography for our covers. This is a great opportunity to publicise your work; our website has had over 30,000 hits in total. The artwork dimensions would need to be A4 size, 300 dpi. 

Submissions are also open for writing. We’re looking for beautiful, well-constructed stories, poems and essays. The deadline for submissions of both writing and artwork is Friday 18th October. While we are looking forward to reading each and every submission, themed or not, we would especially like to see writing (and artwork) with the theme of Hallowe’en- think spooky, spine-tingling, and shuddersome. 

For details of how to submit please visit

And before submitting, please familiarise yourself with the magazine by visiting where a full archive of all past issues is available.

As well as providing a platform for established writers, this year’s magazines will also give new writers the opportunity to make their publishing debuts, and we exist to help these writers shine.

We look forward to receiving your work.


As the dust settles and submissions begin to tumble in for Issue 18 (due to be released on November 29th), we’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has contributed to, downloaded and supported this fledgling magazine. The number of visits to the website over the weekend was staggering, and we’re grateful to those who have helped to promote and spread the word.

We’d love to now receive some feedback from our readers and subscribers, so that our next issue can be even better than the last. Your comments, suggestions, criticisms and nitpicks will be gratefully taken on board, as of course will any glowing recommendations and/or tributes of soaring lyrical praise. Feel free to get in touch via the comments below or at our email address,
And don’t forget to send your poetry, prose and (especially) essays on the craft of writing to the same address. We’re reading submissions on a rolling basis and need quality writing for the next batch of delicious Glasgowy goodness.

We also have a shiny new twitter account, so please do come along and say hello @glasgow2saturn.

All the best,

Alan, Nick and Sheila
