INK answers some of your questions.
For a run down of this year’s theme and details of the maximum word counts for submissions, please see the Submit to INK page.
1. Do I have to be a Plymouth University student to submit?
At this time, yes, you do.
2. Do I have to be an English and/or a Creative Writing student to submit my writing?
Nope. Students from all faculties and courses are welcome to submit.
3. Do I have to be an amazing fantastic perfect writer or artist?
Of course not. We want original and imaginative work and nobody is perfect. Whether you’re a novice or whether you’ve been published ten times before, you’re welcome to submit.
4. Is there a theme?
Our theme this year is New Beginnings. Your submitted piece can also fall under a further subcategory. You can choose from Natural World, Journey, Culture and Love(s) but this isn’t essential.
5. Will I automatically get published in print?
No. Unfortunately we don’t have the ability to publish everybody in the print edition of INK. Our editors will choose a number of entries to be printed. The rest of our entries will, however, be published online.
6. When is the deadline for submissions?
Our final deadline for submissions will be midnight, Friday 18th March 2016. This is your last chance to submit so get creating!
7. Can I submit work that I have produced in workshops, or submitted for assignments?
You can certainly submit workshop work, but you can only submit work that was previously written for an assignment if it has been marked and returned to you at the time of submission. We cannot accept work that is still undergoing marking.
8. I still have a question.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
