Welcome to our big 2020/21 relaunch!

We have a brand new team, a new digital look, and we’re currently gearing up for Issue 7 under Lockdown 3.0.

Just a little bit ‘About Us’:

We are a creative anthology, produced and published by students at the University of Hull. The Hull Scribbler is a safe space to showcase the talent of our peers – what we believe makes Hull University the amazing institution it is!

This year, Issue 7 will be digital and uploaded on this site for everyone to view! There will be no cost.

Our theme for 2020/21 is Lockdown.

We accept work revolving around any aspect of the pandemic, or simply just created during it! (from March 2020 onwards).

Here at the Scribbler we understand that being creative has been a struggle, and we want to bring attention to your beautiful pieces of art.

Haven’t been feeling it up till now? No worries! Closing date for entries is the 20th March 2021.

Accepted submissions:

  • Prose, Fiction or Non-Fiction (of up to 1000 words, can be short stories that combined total this)
  • Poetry (up to 3 pieces)
  • Photography
  • Artwork (Any medium! Digital, oil paint, acrylic, chalk, the list goes on!)
  • Music (Either lyrics or lyrics/sheet music)
  • Musical performances – this is the first year these will be included, and can be submitted alongside the lyrics! We’d love to see the videos of your pieces performed, and since we are all online now, these can be included.
  • Plays (Limited to a few acts, these can also be performed!)

To submit, head over to our submissions page!
