Coze Journal

(noun): a friendly talk or chat

The very first print journal of the Curtin Writers Club is coming next semester.

Follow the CWC Coze Updates Blog to keep up-to-date with our journal’s progress, due dates, and more.

Our first print publication is coming in semester 2 of 2017. This is the perfect opportunity to get your work published in beautiful shiny print!

Submissions open on 1st May, 2017

Coze Journal is taking submissions of prose (up to 1000 words) and poetry (up to 30 lines), which could be anything from creative non-fiction to short fiction, lyric essay, free verse poetry – anything that drips from your pen to the paper! We want to hear your words.

Theme: Conversation

Now is your opportunity for great storytelling and writing. Conversations rule the ways in which we get our ideas across, and it’s not always a literal dialogue. You could write about the conversation of body language, an entirely hypothetical discussion, or purely on the theme of conversation. As long as your writing has some connection to conversation, send it in and give yourself a chance.

Please note that you can only enter if you are a member of the Curtin Writers Club, and your work has to be original and unpublished. If you’re not a member yet, worry not! You can now join online.

Submissions close on 14th July, 2017, 11:59 pm.

All successful authors will receive a free copy of the journal.
