|I was asked to spread this message to anyone who might be interested. No idea if this has anything to do with the literary mag Steven, gorky, Dear Prudence and others have talked about in the past, but I know Jack has spoken to Pru about it at some point. So get involved!
(have crossposted to Free Speech - best keep discussion in one thread, and I arbitrarily suggest people reply to that one and not here)
On behalf of the Birmingham University Literary Magazine, get writing! Send your material to email@example.com
We want material (i.e. poems, short stories, essays articles, travel writing...anything of interest) by 16th November for an issue being released on the 23rd November to coincide with the Edgesoc poetry reading event. This is at 5:00 until 8ish in the Staff Student Common room. As well as a free copy of the Literary Magazine, there will also be free wine on offer.
We are hoping that it will be a popular event with both staff and students alike. We hope to have readings from Steve Ellis, Bob Wilcher and a number of other members of staff and students. If you would like to read anything please get in touch as soon as possible with a proposal.
If you don’t think you will have time to submit anything before the 16th November, do not worry! We are hoping to publish a number of issues this year so just send you material to firstname.lastname@example.org when it is ready. Don’t be shy….if you want to be anonymous, just say so.
We have weekly meetings in the Guild Basement, usually on Wednesdays. The next one is 4pm Wednesday 25th. As well as writers, we need people to help with layout (desktop publishing), printing logistics, distribution and advertising. Experience or no experience, get involved.
We are looking for adverts from any societies and are charging £10, £15 or £20 pounds an advert, depending on size. Rates are negotiable.
So, get involved. Dust off those typewriters, pick up that pen or get off msn and get writing now!
I look forward to seeing everyone on the 23rd November in the English Department or at the meeting next Wednesday.
All the best
