The Survivor Anthology at Oxford University - Open for Submissions

The Survivor Anthology at Oxford University is an arts and literature publication for survivors of sexual assault and relationship abuse, and allies, to share their voices. The Anthology team is now accepting submissions until Friday 7th Week (14th June). 


The Anthology is an SU Project led by It Happens Here, the student-run sexual violence prevention and response campaign at the University of Oxford. As an anonymous publication, it compiles the responses of survivors of relationship abuse and sexual violence to their individual experiences. Accepted work includes nonfiction creative writing and essays, and artwork. The aim is to publish everything from personal poetry to essays about self-empowerment to expressive paintings and drawings, so almost anything goes. It also accepts and encourages pieces from advocates, allies, and active bystanders who have dedicated their time and resources to helping survivors. The purpose of the Anthology is to provide an empowering outlet for creative expression, solidarity building, and awareness promotion in the university community.


SU Projects is a platform that enables any student to bring to life their ideas to make a difference to the student body. Students who propose a project receive support from the SU to develop and promote their project, as well as funding to get them started.


The Survivors Anthology is receiving submissions from students and staff of Oxford University. Those who submit retain full ownership of their work and all submissions will be published anonymously and treated confidentially. We aim to accept all submissions. The anthology will be published digitally on our Project webpage Thursday 8th Week (20th June).
