UC Writers Zine – March 2019

UC Writers is looking for submissions!

Every month UC Writers accepts works based around a different theme, for publication in a free online Zine here on ucwriters.com.

We have an update on our word limit, so please read our updated Submission Guidelines. Additionally, for this month only we’ll be re-running our last two themes. You’re welcome to submit for either of them, or combine them in an interesting way.

The themes for March 2019 are: “Flights of Fancy” and/or “Murder”.

UPDATE: Deadline has now been extended to Monday the 15th of April.


  • Send submissions in doc/docx format to ucwritersgroup@gmail.com.
  • Please include “UC Writers Zine Submission Mar19” in the subject line.
  • The word limit for submissions is five-hundred words.
  • Submissions can be short narrative fiction or poetry, of any genre.
  • Individuals may submit multiple pieces, but only one piece will be selected per author.
  • The deadline for this month is 11:59pm Tuesday the 26th of March.



In the week after the deadline the following will happen:

A team of three executive committee members will meet and select the works they feel best meet our selection criteria.

We will then reach out to the successful authors, and work with them for any minor editing/proofreading needed before publication.

As our Zine has such a short turn-around from submission deadline to publication, we would ask that you make yourself available to respond quickly to our emails in the week following the deadline.

Barring any complications, you can expect a new Zine to be published at the end of every month!
