We are looking for new talent to publish, so whether you are 16 or 86, if you’ve got an original take on life, we want to hear about it.

There are performance opportunities too, but don’t worry if you aren’t into reading in public. Writing, poetry and art will continue to appear at the blog.

If you do want to bring your work to a wider audience, we’ve bagged a spot at the forthcoming Wolverhampton Original Literature Festival (WOLF).

On Sunday 28 January, you could be reading in front of a live audience. So get submitting your work! There will also be a prequel event in the University Library on Wednesday 24 January.

For details on how to enter, visit the Opportunities page.

The current reading period for all submissions CLOSES AT MIDNIGHT JANUARY 15, so keep sending stuff in! We will announce a further reading period in the Spring.

To submit your entries, use the submissions portal or email
