UEL Sci-Fi / Fantasy writing competition

Has it been a dream of yours to have your work published and your creative talents celebrated?

If so, then The Gallion could be the perfect place to begin your literary adventures!

This year’s quest – should you choose to embark upon it! – is to submit a piece of poetry or prose in the genres of Fantasy and/or Science-Fiction.

You can explore any themes, tell any story, or recount any adventure, so long as it falls within the fantastical elements of one, or both, of these two diverse genres.

Can you create dystopian worlds with terrifying consequences, twisted plots and hideous monsters?

Produce poetry that inspires awe with epic tales?

Explore the expanse of history, or the eons yet to come?

If yes, then enter our competition for your chance to be published in The Gallion Anthology, Volume 5 (2019)

We can’t wait to hear from you!
