Write for Cuckoo Chronicle

Cuckoo Chronicle is our online bi-annual literary magazine, written by young people aged 15-21. Its aim is to showcase high quality, innovative writing and support emerging writers.

Cuckoo Chronicle is also edited by a committee of young people (also aged 15-21), who read all the submissions, give feedback and decide on the editorial direction of Cuckoo Chronicle.

We accept poetry, short fiction, flash fiction, excerpts from longer fiction (providing they make sense as a stand alone piece) and creative non-fiction (not reviews).

We also love to receive audio/ video, so we also accept songs, performances and short films. We like it best when you’re creative with your writing and the means of presenting it.

Cuckoo Chronicle will be published twice a year.

Cuckoo Chronicle is now closed for submissions. It will re-open later in 2016.

If you would like to get more involved with Cuckoo Chronicle and are based in the north east of England, you can join the editorial committee. No experience is necessary and meetings take place four times a year in Newcastle upon Tyne. Email us at cuckoo@newwritingnorth.com for more details.
