Call for Content
What we’re looking for:
- Poetry- limit of 50 lines
- Creative non-fiction– limit of 2,000 words
- Short stories– limit of 2,000 words
Are you an undergraduate or postgraduate student at the University of Exeter or the University of Plymouth? Do you have a passion for creative writing? Then we might have just the online writing platform for you!
We are on the hunt for creative and critical pieces to publish on The Charles Causley Trust’s new literary blog, The Maker. If you are looking to raise the profile of your work then this could be your chance to shine. Not only could your writing be seen by the Trust’s existing readership and festival attendees, as well as the Trust’s highly engaged community of writers and artists, you could also be part of its expanding pool of younger contributors.
We are excited to announce the blog will be launched on 18th October 2021, with a whole weeks’ worth of creative writing posts all based upon the theme “Eden”, inspired by Charles Causley’s much-loved poem “Eden Rock”, and written by you! This is a chance to showcase the work of talented students on the Charles Causley Trust’s website, so if you think you have something (or want to pen a new piece) tackling our theme in a new and interesting way, we’d love to hear from you.
Deadline for submissions: 1st October 2021
Email all submissions, along with a brief paragraph letting us know a bit about you, to firstname.lastname@example.org by this date. Please also include a short bio about who you are and where you study, as well as a bit of information about the piece we are about to read. If you are successful, we’ll be in touch to let you know when you can expect to see your work go live and to discuss any edits or developments, though these will not be extensive. As we are a new blog, we’re looking to foster connections with local writers. All authors we hear from will be considered for later publications.
We look forward to hearing from you!
The Charles Causley Trust
