Octavius has relaunched with a new look and a new ethos – you no longer have to be a student in Scotland to submit.
We now invite submissions of up to 1000 words of fiction or 30 lines of poetry.
Submissions should be attached to an email and sent to email@example.com
In the subject line please include your name and the genre of writing (eg, John Rackham – poetry / Anne Bonny – prose).
We like to support our writers and while we are unable to pay for published work we like to share websites, social media profiles, and any other bits of jetsam you float our way.
Octavius is now accepting submissions for Issue 3.
Building on the success of Issues 1 and 2, we are looking for prose, drama and poetry from any student studying at a Scottish college or university (regardless of age, studied subject or award level). Submissions must be made from a university or college email address and must not exceed 2000 words of prose or 100 lines of poetry.
With more beautiful custom artwork from Forevermore Tattoo Parlour’s Roberto Poliri, Octavius Issue 3 will showcase some of the best writing coming out of Scotland’s colleges and universities.
To submit, visit our submissions page, and for a sample of what we’re looking for, why not check out our previous issues?
