Pulse – whether the pulse of a city, the heart, language, a sense of energy or a beat, we are looking for pieces that explore the theme of movement and change. We are accepting a range of non-fiction submissions that explore the human pulse, whether emotional or psychological, political or social. What does it mean for one or many pulses to beat to a different rhythm?
You may also explore the opposite: stagnation, where the pulse ceases, creating divisions, death and a sense of otherness. What happens when that vital pulse slows or stops?

We encourage submissions from a diverse range of voices and perspectives.

We are looking for non-fiction and black-and-white images:

  • Interviews, essays, memoir, artistic and literary criticism and media reviews (up to 1500 words)
  • Poetry (up to 30 lines)
  • Graphic pieces such as comics (300 dpi)
  • Photographic essays (300 dpi)
  • Single photo submissions and illustrations (300 dpi)

Send finished pieces to with Your Name _ Submission in the subject line and include a bio of around 50 words in a separate Word document.

Pulse is a student-run anthology and we are unable to provide payment for any work. Contributors will be given a copy of the published book, opportunities to be published on the Bowen Street Press website and an invitation to the launch. Pulse will be distributed, but not sold commercially.

Submissions close C.O.B Monday 3rd April 2017.

We look forward to reading about what makes your heart race.
