We are currently inviting submissions from all BA Creative Writing Students for the inaugural editions, to be published as eBooks in June 2014.


These journals are created by fourth year students on the BACW’s Publishing Project module, and will contain selected writing from undergraduate creative writing students only. The finished eJournals will be distributed free to all BACW students, as well as to selected literary agents and editors.


All three eJournals will be launched with a special reading event at Stratford Circus (www.stratford-circus.com) on the evening of 4th June 2014, and guests from the publishing industry will be invited to attend. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get your work published and read. The deadline for submissions is 6pm on Monday 3rd March 2014.
