The Scores is the literary journal of the University of St Andrews, under an advisory team of esteemed professors and instructors, including Don Paterson, Robert Crawford, Kathleen Jamie, Oli Hazzard, and Peter McKay. We seek to publish a very wide range of poetry (as can be seen in our current issue) in English and the languages of Scotland, along with poems translated into English and reviews of recent work in our bi-annual issues. We like work that thrills, work that moves, work that plays along the cliff edge.
Scrib seeks work that explore the human experience with honesty & authenticity. Spirituality permeates our experiences and is therefore an inherent element in our art. We look for unique work that will connect on a personal level, provoke reflection about our lives, & linger in the viewer’s mind after reaching the end. Your work need not have tidy Sunday School answers or easy resolutions to be published; struggles, complexity, and ambiguity are part of the human experience, too.
Scrib desires to provide authentic art and writing while maintaining Christian values. Any artist or writer might need to portray a variety of beliefs and worldviews to accurately represent the diversity of our world. Scrib draws the line at work that doesn’t show clear respect for the basic tenets of the Christian faith. The topic of sexuality is not off-limits, but we don’t publish graphic sexual content or work that condones sexual activity outside marriage. Swearing should be artistically essential, if used.

We love work that is linguistically, intellectually, and emotionally demanding of the reader. We want literary fiction that grows in complexity upon each visitation; we enjoy ornate, cerebral, and voluptuous prose executed with thematic intent. Writers we admire are Zadie Smith, Virginia Woolf, Tom Wolfe, Charles Dickens, Thomas Mann, Robert Musil, Tom Stoppard, Vladimir Nabokov and James Baldwin.
Every piece published in AZURE appears alongside a customized black & white sketch that is devised and executed by our in-house illustrator.
We accept literary fiction, novel excerpts, creative non-fiction, screenplays, stageplays, fragments, meanderings, philosophy and poetry. We are not concerned with genre distinctions; we want only for it to be thoughtful, intelligent, and beautiful. All writers tend to develop a scrap heap of brilliant writing - sharp dialogue that has been cut in service of a plot, a philosophical tirade that can't quite be couched in a narrative, a stunning imagistic landscape of linguistic pyrotechnics that deserves an audience... literary beauty that cannot necessarily be expressed in more than bursts and fragments.
Outstanding poetry and fiction in many genres and many voices. Poetry includes free verse, haiku, formal poetry, experimental poetry, sentimental poetry, and international poetry, including African poetry. Fiction from flash or micro to full length. Creative non-fiction. Monthly interview with a poet, author or artist. Occasional poetry book review. 35 - 45 authors per monthly issue.

Submission in more than one category is welcome. We rarely publish long poems. We have a soft spot for limericks and haiku. We aren't prudes, we accept sex, violence or crude language if they are key to a good story, but won't publish anything hateful. We love a good story and a great poem.
