We’re the Underground Writers, a team of volunteers who gather and curate creative writing from talented authors and put it together into Underground Creative Writing zine. We rely on submissions from talented and passionate creatives, and this applies to you if:

  • you want to experience the thrill and eternal glory of having your original work published
  • you have some poetry or prose that you’re dying for people to know about
  • but perhaps you dread submitting to a professional literary journal because it’s intimidating and impossibly competitive

If any of these strike a chord then Underground is for you! We are the first step in your writing career: an independent, free ‘zine focused on anything and everything creative writing. Underground Writers are writers and students with a passion and flair for everything writing, and we don’t just want to share it with each other: we want to share it with the world!

We love hearing from you!
