Oh hello there!

Empire Times is the Flinders University student magazine. It is a unique opportunity to publish your fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, designs and comics. You don’t need to be a professional writer—Empire Times accepts any level of experience. If your piece is accepted, you’ll go through a collaborative editing process.

If you’re not so clear on exactly what you’d like to write: that’s totally okay! A lot of people want to submit, but aren’t quite sure how to get started. We’d suggest having a look through the different sections of the magazine, and finding the section that screams “I have a story to be told” and beginning with that. If you’re completely stumped, send us an email and let us know: we’ll see if we can set you up with a few ideas to get you going. We also have a contributor group on Facebook, where you can keep up to date with the submission themes and deadlines, and get to know other contributors!

If you already know what you want to write, send us off an email to! But please check out the Submission Guidelines first so that you can submit your contribution in a format that we accept.
