Applications are now open for a 2017/2018 position on Publicity/Events as part of the wider Notes team!
This week’s submissions consider many degrees of separation, from the uncomfortable closeness of the political and the personal in Jacqueline Krass’ 8 November 2016 to Finty Hunter’s haunting description of a body’s proximity to fragility: Muscle turned skeletal. Chance encounters abound: James Roberts’ glimpse of an echo; Rosie McKeown’s meeting of two old companions; Alice Hughes’ reflection on a ‘bad start’. We hope it reminds you of everyday connections in a world preoccupied by differences.
You can find samples of the fantastic work in this issue below:
We are delighted to have held our first writing workshop of the year recently, led by renowned local poet Adam Crothers. It was held in the Lightfoot Room of St. John’s College.
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.
