A warm welcome to all the new freshers of 2016 and to our usual readers and contributors. Notes is a student-run publication at Cambridge which welcomes submissions of all kinds from students and non-students – artwork, poetry, short stories, micro-fiction, and anything else we find interesting. Our first submissions deadline for 11.59pm on Friday October 7th is open now – please submit work of any theme at all and none to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To get an idea of the kinds of things we have published in the past, feel free to have a look through free copies of our special Eco issue and at Notes Three, our third Annual, both linked below. Or have a read through articles written by the Tab and Varsity about our past publications and publication culture.
Maybe even have a look at footnotes, our sister pre-Summer publication focusing on micro or flashfiction of 100 words or less (or six lines) – in the past Simon Armitage, Ali Smith, Don Paterson and other famous writers have featured as guest contributors.
[The annuals] cost £5 but I can promise you they’re worth it. A subscription to the fortnightly magazine, which is always varied and interesting, is also money well spent.
Lara Ferris, The Tab
…it is clear that [a] strong sense of community and common interest in pursuing creativity is something which Notes will continue to perpetuate throughout Cambridge.
Elizabeth Howcroft, Varsity
We’re still a young publication as we enter our fifth year, but each year Notes grows more and more as a creative network due to an amazing audience. We’re all very approachable too – talk to the team at our fortnightly events, chat to us at the CUSU and several college Fresher’s Fairs or message us on Facebook. We hope that many of you will become regular readers and contributors to our publication this year and beyond!
