Since 1998, the UNSWeetened Literary Journal has published the finest poetry, essays, short stories, and experimental works by UNSW students. Submissions to UNSWeetened 2022 are now open.
The them for 2022 is... SYNC
We fall in and out of sync with ourselves, communities, time, and realities. Stepping wordlessly in sync. Circles rippling in parallel. Symbiosis organisms. Well-oiled cogs and gears. Worlds in harmony. Scrolling through timelines of those we once knew. Reflections warping in dented mirrors. Estranged siblings. Satellites drifting off course. Empires falling apart.
This year, we seek writing that reminds, questions, and explores the line between connect and disconnect - what it means to be in or out of sync.
We accept submissions in the categories of short story, poetry, and essay. We encourage experimental, transformative, and cross-genre work. There are no restrictions on subject matter, but we encourage use of the theme ‘sync’ as a point of departure; this is not, however, mandatory.
SUBMISSIONS OPEN: FRI 25 MAR
DEADLINE: MON 4 JUL 23.59PM
