Introducing… the LOCKDOWN Anthology of creative work, collated by Edge Hill Students’ Union.
The LOCKDOWN anthology responds to the news that, during the coronavirus pandemic, people of all backgrounds have turned to and rediscovered their passion for creativity.
Whether it’s original writing (poetry & prose), photography, art, or film, we at Edge Hill Students’ Union are accepting submissions for our first ever web-zine, and we want YOU to be part of it.
We’d love to read, watch, and witness creative pieces that respond to our current lockdown situation: what that means on a personal, societal, and even political level. We are, however, accepting all submissions from members of the Edge Hill community, and in this sense the LOCKDOWN anthology will not have a strict theme that your work must follow.
Please note: you must be a member of the Edge Hill University community to submit to LOCKDOWN. This includes both students and staff.
As COVID-19 is an ongoing (and ever-changing) situation, we are setting no concrete close date for submissions, and therefore for publication, for the time being.
While we will be selecting submissions to be collated into an online zine, we may, for the time being, publish a sample of submitted work via our social media pages until such a publication date can be set.
As such, the LOCKDOWN Anthology of Creative Work can be viewed as a rolling project.
If you are a member of the Edge Hill University community and would like to send work to be considered for publication in LOCKDOWN, please see below for our full submission guidelines:
For all submissions, email your work to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line LOCKDOWN: [YOUR NAME]. In the body of your email, include a short biographical note (roughly 50 words), whether you are a student or staff member, in addition to a short description of what you have submitted which should include (if relevant) the name of the project.
We will reply to all submissions as and when the inbox is checked (please bear with us during peak times, we are working remotely after all!)
All selected artists, for both social media publication and eventual publication in the LOCKDOWN anthology, will be contacted prior to their work being published.
