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

Do you have a short story, poem or memoir you’d like published? The Gallion is now open for all submissions! We are happy to publish in any genre as long as the story captures the reader’s imagination.

You can submit up to 3000 words, and the deadline is midnight on March 29th, 2018

We are particularly interested in the stories about Identity in the 21st century, or even an experience derived from your identity that translates into a poem. What does identity mean to you?

The definition of the word identity can be found to be: “the fact of being who or what a person or thing is.” The word has many categories – sexuality and gender are often what comes to mind.

But in the 21st century, what creates your identity? How do mental health, race, class issues, sexuality, and gender define who you are?

When submitting your work, include your name, student number, title of your piece and format (for example, short stories, poetry, memoirs, etc.)

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

All submissions should be sent to

We look forward to reading your work!
