Calling for submissions to the 2018 USYD Student Anthology

15 May, 2018

Submissions to the 2018 USYD Student Anthology are now open to all current Sydney University students for written (fiction, non-fiction, poetry) or visual works on the theme of power.

Since 2007, the annual Sydney University Student Anthology has provided a platform for Sydney University students to showcase their creative abilities. For many emerging writers and artists, this has often been the first chance to see their work published in a carefully crafted collection. The anthology provides the opportunity to have your work professionally edited and featured in a beautifully designed book with a foreword by a renowned literary figure, who in the past included Ceridwen Dovey, Kate Forsyth, PM Newton and Mark Tredinnick among others.
For this year’s anthology we are looking for stories and essays, poetry and visual works that engage with the theme of power. The vast imbalance of global economic and political power coupled with exponential growth in networked, globalised technology has supercharged the term with more electricity and complexity than ever before. If we look at power as an ideological notion that supress and self-governs us, we can see the creative power that language allows. Words have power.
What does power mean for you? Study the world around you and surprise us! Submit by 31 July.
