Talking About Lobsters
From 1 May 2017, submissions are invited for New Writing Scotland 36, publishing in summer 2018. Submissions should be typed on one side of the paper only and the sheets stapled at the top-left corner. Prose pieces should be double-spaced and carry an approximate word-count. You should provide a covering letter, clearly marked with your name and address. Please also put your name on the individual works. If you would like to receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your manuscript, please enclose a stamped addressed postcard. If you would like to be informed if your submission is unsuccessful, or if you would like your submissions returned, you should enclose a stamped addressed envelope with sufficient postage. Submissions should be sent by 30 September 2017, in an A4 envelope, to:
Department of Scottish Literature
7 University Gardens
University of Glasgow
Glasgow G12 8QH, UK
We are sorry but we cannot accept submissions by fax or e-mail.
Please be aware that we have limited space in each edition, and therefore shorter pieces are more suitable – although longer items of exceptional quality may still be included. A maximum length of 3,500 words is suggested. Please send no more than four poems, and no more than one prose work. Successful contributors will be paid at a rate of £20 per published page.
Authors retain all rights to their work(s), and are free to submit and/or publish the same work(s) elsewhere after they appear in New Writing Scotland.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. Details can be found on our contact page.
