Poets, writers, photographers, artists: call for submissions

We’re currently looking for submissions so we can dedicate weekends to promoting and publishing original, previously unpublished work. If you’re a poet, writer, or photographer, then we’d love to see your work, to be published either on a regular or a one-off basis.

From writers we are looking for short stories of up to 1500 words, or short stories of up to 5000 words for serialisation. There is no restriction on genre, but we are looking for serious literary fiction. There is no deadline as this will be an ongoing concern, and publication will depend upon the quality and quantity of works we receive. From poets we are looking for poems of up to approximately 50 lines, with the same guidelines as fiction for the style of work we will consider. If you feel your poems work better spoken than written, then feel free to send a (high-quality) video of yourself reading the poems being considered for inclusion.

From photographers we are looking for art photographs on any subject or theme. Again there is no deadline for submissions; we have a regular photo column so photographs would be published on Sundays.

If you work in a different medium from those stated above – for example artists, playwrights, musicians, and film-makers, and think you have something that would work well on the site, please do get in contact with a brief outline of what you would like to have considered.

Please email no more than two examples of your work to the editor at theoxfordculturereview@gmail.com, along with a brief author/photographer biography. Written submissions should be in pdf or .doc format. The site is entirely non-profit so we cannot offer payment for included work; this is intended as a platform to promote and publicise new ideas from emerging talents. You don’t have to be based in Oxford to submit, so we look forward to receiving your work!
