Welcome to The Letters Page
The Letters Page is a literary journal in letters, published by the School of English at the University of Nottingham and edited by Jon McGregor. We publish essays, stories, poetry, memoir, travelogue, and criticism; but all in the form of letters. We are interested in the literary traditions of letter-writing, and in the idea of correspondence in a digital age. We would love to hear from you.
Submissions for Volume 7
We are currently reading submissions for Vol 7 of The Letters Page, to be published in 2024.
We publish stories, essays, poems, memoir, reportage, criticism, recipes, travelogue, and any hybrid forms. We are looking for writers of all nationalities and ages, both established and emerging. We only ask that your submission come in the form of a letter.
Your letter must be sent in the post, to:
The Letters Page, School of English, University of Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK
There is no strict word limit for your submission, but our letters now have to fit on a single side of A4 paper, so any letters submitted must suit this format. We rarely publish letters with a word count higher than 750.
Any submission not in letter format will be automatically rejected.
Please allow time for us to read and respond to submissions. We aim to review submissions on a rolling basis, with breaks over the summer and Christmas holidays; therefore, we will try to get back to you as soon as possible, but our response time can be up to four months.
All contributors will receive the next Aerogramme whether successful or not; contributors whose letter gets shortlisted will get a year’s subscription to The Letters Page’s publication.
Published contributors will get a lifetime subscription to our Aerogramme letters. They will also receive a gift subscription to one of our favourite small presses or literary journals.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
