Calling for Submissions!

Do you enjoy writing, drawing or any other creative art? If so, we would love to hear from you!

CovWords is a magazine and website for creative writing and art. The magazine was created in 2008 to showcase the creativity within Coventry University, giving students a platform to publish their work and gain recognition.

Our theme for this year is JOURNEY, tying to our 10th Anniversary. Be as literal or metaphorical as you’d like – write about life, death, a trip, phase, transformation – be creative! Work can, however, be submitted outside of this theme. We would love to hear from all writers and artists! Submissions open today (1st of November 2018) and close on the 15th of December at 23:59 – good luck!
