UEL’s creative writing anthology “The Gallion” is now calling for submissions of poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, illustrations, and reviews!

The theme for the 2016/2017 anthology is Displacement.

The word ‘displacement’ has multiple definitions depending on its use. It can mean “the action of moving something from its place or position”, “the occupation by a submerged body or part of a body of a volume which would otherwise be occupied by a fluid”, or “the unconscious transfer of an intense emotion from one object to another”.

When submitting you work, include your name, student number, title of your piece, and format (for example, prose or poetry).

If you are illustrating for a submission, please include the title of the original submission.

All submissions should be sent to

We look forward to reading your work!
