Thank you for thinking of submitting your work with us. We are passionate about publishing new and exciting voices; so if you think you have something to say then we want to hear from you! Please do take a look at the other writers published by us – if we accept you then you will be sitting alongside them. We think they’re pretty amazing. We hope you agree!

Submissions are open to all. You don’t have to be a Newcastle University student, or even a student. We’d like to hear from as many different people as possible, and by opening it up to the public we hope to achieve this. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.
