Submissions are invited for New Writing Scotland 40, publishing in summer 2022. New Writing Scotland publishes works by writers resident in Scotland or Scots by birth, upbringing or inclination. All forms of writing are invited.
Autobiography and memoirs; creative responses to events and experiences; drama; graphic artwork (monochrome only); poetry; political and cultural commentary and satire; screenplays; short fiction; travel writing or any other creative prose may be submitted. The work may be in any of the languages of Scotland.
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, or one prose work. Successful contributors will be paid at a rate of £25 per published page.
Submission is free. For further guidelines and to submit, please visit our Submittable page.
Deadline: Sunday 31 October 2021 at 23:59
