Use the following pre-released issue theme to write your poem(s), take your photograph(s), or create your illustration(s):


The theme for our fourteenth issue is ‘security’. We encourage you to be creative in your interpretation of this theme, and there are no limits as to how it can be developed. Initial ideas could include what security means to you, what happens when you don’t feel safe, and the actions that can provide or deny other people security.

Please send your poem(s), photograph(s) and illustration(s) with the following details to

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • A contact email address (or postal address if the former is not possible) 
  • A first-person biography consisting of a couple of sentences that will be published below your poem, photograph or illustration, alongside your name and your age, explaining who you are (this can include anything from what sports-team you support to the place where you like to go to write)
