Recently, at The Letters Page

  • Take some time out this weekend for writing - it may be your last chance to pen your submission for Issue 6. We, the editorial team, are itching to get back into the office and discover some wonderful talent hidden away in envelopes.

    Here is the original call for submissions we put out a couple of months ago:

    We want stories, essays, poems, memoir, travelogue, reportage, conversation, criticism, speculation, illustration, deviation, and more. If you can fit it in an envelope and put it in the post to us at the address below, we will consider it for publication. There is no theme; there are no restrictions. Be smart about it: we are a correspondence-based literary journal with a limited number of pages, and in general shortness and smallness is a virtue. But we are looking for works of literary wonder, and we have no wish to inhibit you. Surprise us.

    We will pay £100 for every submission published.
    Closing Date for Issue 6 is April 22, 2015.
    Send your submissions to: The Letters Page, School of English, University of Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK. 

    Good luck!
