Old wax-sealed letter

“Studying in the South West is unique. You have all this culture that feels hidden like it’s waiting to be discovered, time capsules from decades gone by, all set in this beautiful landscape.”

Melia Crawford, BA (Hons) Art History student

“Writing was always my rainy-day pastime. A chance to explore the world or create new worlds of my own to explore.”

INK journal

Published by the University of Plymouth Press, and supported by English and creative writing staff, INK is entirely edited and produced by our students.
The process of producing INK is as important as the end product. It’s the chance for you to publish your creative work in a literary magazine.
