Call For Submissions: Symbal Issue 3

NUS Literary Society would like to call for submissions for the third issue of Symbal – our online creative writing publication – which will be launched at the end of September. We are open to prose, poetry, dramatic extracts, articles and treatises from both undergraduate and graduate students studying in Singapore, tertiary students (JC/Poly/IB Year 5 onwards) as well as NSFs.

The theme for this issue will be ‘Southeast Asia’. Writers are free to contemplate anything from the Petronas Towers to the romanticised exoticism of the Orient; from today’s chilli crab, palm oil, and modern skylines to sundry Victorians who found themselves here despite thinking the climate most insalubrious.

Kindly send all your works to symbalmagazine@gmail.com and put “Submissions: <title of work>” in the subject field.

The closing date for entries will be 16 September.

Kindly refer to http://symbal.zxq.net/?page_id=16 for Symbal’s guidelines for submission.

The Literary Society wishes you a fruitful and inspirational semester!
