Contact and Submissions

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact the Editors at: uclctew@ucl.ac.uk

We accept all forms of writing: from the avant-garde to the memoiristic, stories and poems with an ancient setting to reworkings of ancient texts, or pieces with just the slight pulse of the past beneath modernity. 

Any submitted piece should have — however subtle — some relevance to the ancient world and/or its reception. 

​We encourage entries from a diversity of voices, and from both emerging and established writers. We accept pieces based outside the conception of the Greco-Roman ancient world. 

All submissions should be sent to the Editors at: uclctew@ucl.ac.uk. We accept submissions year-round. Submissions should be sent as PDF attachments. Submissions may be sent anonymously. We accept poetry, prose, and translations. There is no minimum or maximum length, but we rarely publish pieces over 10,000 words. 

We are unable to offer payment at this time, but may be able to cover some translation costs. Please contact the Editors for further information.
