Next deadline

We are now accepting submissions for the August event, on Monday 9 August 2010. The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. on Monday 26 July. We’ll let you know whether your piece has been selected by Monday 2 August.

Who can submit

Please note that only students from Birkbeck’s creative writing courses, past and present, can submit work to writLOUD. If this means you are not eligible, we hope you will still join us as a member of the audience.

Submissions policy

Selected work

Selected work will be read at the next event.

If your work is selected, you will be asked to provide a brief biography (up to 100) words, to include on a handout and publish on the website.

Subject to the author's permission, a podcast of the reading will be made available on the website. Copyright remains with the individual author.


For writers who would like to receive coaching on reading their work aloud in front of an audience, there will be at least one workshop each term. Please look out for a separate email about the next workshop.
