We are excited to launch an open call for the second edition of our Wolf Words Poetry Anthology; this year our theme is Wild. 

Two nature photographs, one of someone hiking and one of a hare.

Overview

We invite all 鶹ӾCollege members – staff, students, Fellows, Senior Members, alumni, and residential partners – to submit an original poem for consideration. The anthology will be published in both online and print form at the end of Lent term 2024. You can read more about last year’s collection and view the online version of the printed publication here.

 

How to submit

Submissions are now open, and will close at 6pm (UK time) on the deadline of Wednesday 31 January 2024. 

If you would like to submit your work for consideration, please complete with your poem. We also ask you for a brief third-person biography, to give readers a sense of who you are and why you write.

Our theme this year is ‘W’, but you are free to interpret this theme in whatever way you wish. Please email any questions about the project to our Student Recruitment Officer, Caroline Banerjee: sro@wolfson.cam.ac.uk.

 

Guidelines

  • The submission must be your own work and should be previously unpublished. It can be short or long, but should not exceed 30 lines. If you are struggling to choose one poem, you can send up to three poems, and we will make the selection. Alternatively, you could send a number of shorter poems that amount to no more than 30 lines.
  • The poem should ideally be in English, but if it’s in another language, we ask that you supply a translation via email.
  • Artwork or photographs to accompany poems, or as standalone pieces, are welcome (max six pieces per person). Again, this should be your own work. Please send artwork or photography to sro@wolfson.cam.ac.uk with the subject, ‘Anthology Artwork Submission’. Please ensure any artwork can be captured in a photograph of suitable resolution for printing, and include the title of your piece (if it has one) in the body of your email.
 

We will be in touch during the first half of Lent term 2024 to let you know if your work has been selected.  We may make some editorial suggestions, but final decisions will be yours.
