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!

Hello from your new Glasgow to Saturn Editors!

We’ve hope you’ve all had a good summer and have been working hard on your brilliant story/poem/essay to submit for the next From Glasgow to Saturn issue.  We’re delighted to be taking over the magazine from the able hands of Alan, Nick & Sheila for the next twelve months.  Issue 23 will be coming your way in mid-October so we are now open for submissions (and thank you to those of you who have been submitting over the summer).  The deadline for submissions is 26th September.  Further information to follow shortly on our plans for the year- including reading parties, themed issues and more.

Issue 18 Online Now!

We are thrilled to announce publication of the 18th issue of From Glasgow to Saturn. We have put together what we feel is a rather delicious collection of short fiction and poetry by present and past students, including Kathrine Sowerby, Vivien Jones, Philip Murnin, Mairi McCloud, Elizabeth Reeder, Amy Rafferty, Lynsey Calderwood, Ellen Glasgow, Michelle Waering, Paul Joseph Abbott and JoAnne Ruby McKay.

You can read prose and poetry online, or download your free copy.

Many thanks to those of you who submitted work. The standards of writing were once again highly impressive, so if your piece did not find a home in this issue, please do try us again in the future. Work has begun already on Issue 19, which we hope to have ready some time in January.

Until then, enjoy the magazine, and we’ll see you in 2011!

Update

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, fromglasgowtosaturn@glasgow.ac.uk.
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

Welcome

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.
