AberInk Winter 2023 Submissions Close

Hello everyone!
We are pleased to announce that we are taking submissions for the next issue of AberInk! AberInk is our semesterly-published collection of student prose and poetry. Do you want to get your work published for the first time? Then we want to hear from you!

The winter 2023/24 theme is…

Rising Tides

“From stories of drowned cities to poems about rising action to fight climate change; whether it be the horror of what lies beneath the waves coming ever closer, or an exploration of a planet with multiple moons, we want to hear from you! Your work doesn't have to fit the theme exactly, as long as your interpretation evokes ‘Rising Tides'.”

—Submission Rules—

  • Up to 1500 words for prose, 60 lines for poetry. There is no minimum word count. (We also allow for 10% over the max word count)
  • Do not submit anything you plan on/have submitted as part of a university assignment, as this may trigger the uni’s plagiarism checks.
  • Must be your own original work.
  • You must have an ECWS membership (if you're receiving this email, you already have one!)
  • Submit as many times as you like!

—Submission Process—

  • Send your submission(s) to ecwsoc@aber.ac.uk with the title ‘AberInk: Rising Tides Submission’.

  • We will be in contact after submissions close to let you know if your work has been accepted.

  • Our editors will suggest any edits, and you’ll approve them.

  • We’re hoping to have AberInk printed by late January 2024!


We are also looking to commission cover art for this issue. This can be anything from graphic design to photography! If you are interested, please send us a small portfolio (2-3 pieces of artwork) and any ideas you may have.
