Submissions are open for Coze Journal

May 2, 2017


The very first print journal of the Curtin Writers Club is coming next semester.


(noun): a friendly talk or chat


Our first print publication is coming in semester 2 of 2017. This is the perfect opportunity to get your work published in beautiful shiny print!


Coze Journal is now taking submissions of prose (up to 1000 words) and poetry (up to 30 lines), which could be anything from creative non-fiction to short fiction, lyric essay, free verse poetry – anything that drips from your pen to the paper! We want to hear your words.




Now is your opportunity for great storytelling and writing. Conversations rule the ways in which we get our ideas across, and it’s not always a literal dialogue. You could write about the conversation of body language, an entirely hypothetical discussion, or purely on the theme of conversation. As long as your writing has some connection to conversation, send it in and give yourself a chance.


For more information on how to submit see the Coze Journal page on our website.
