Get your work published

SEED is on the hunt for submissions and we want to publish your work, opinions, thoughts and ideas!

Issue Four of 2009 will be combined with Issue 1 of 2010 for a bumper issue themed around censorship and the underground. Censorship comes in many forms, there's self-censoring, censoring of children, billboard censorship, government policies censoring our media intake, military power brokers censoring what is reported to us""the general public. The underground: pretty straight forward in relation, so interpret however you will""go wild. Sends us your submissions, and do so uncensored. You can choose any topic, touch on any subject, just try to relate it (however remotely) back to the theme.

Alternatively, you can contribute to one of our regular sections: 

  • Letters and Opinions: respond to previously published work, comment on a current issue, or just have a good whinge about something (200 words). 
  • Around Uni: Write about VU""events, services, faculties, internship programs, history, anything!
  • Student Success stories: know anyone whose taken off from the VU launch pad? Interview them and let us all know what they're up to and how they got there.
  • Reviews: give us your take on a record, book, live performance, festival, venue, sporting event, etc. You can either borrow material to review from us, or fond your own.
