How About Getting Involved in the Mays XiX?

Hello you. Welcome to the new website for the Mays XiX. Take a look around, make yourself comfortable - oh, and while you’re here, how about signing up to our mailing list, joining the facebook group and following us on twitter?

We’re gearing up to deliver the best anthology yet, full of the rawest, freshest and most exciting poetry, prose and visual arts. First things first though.

We are looking for students to help us select the best work to be published next year. 
If you’re interested joining one of our editorial committees (poetry, prose, arts), please apply by January 30th, 2011.

We are also looking for people to help with events and marketing throughout Lent and leading up to release day. There’ll be opportunities to help run readings, organise workshops, curate an exhibition and manage a film competition - as well as helping to raise funds and help with distribution for this year’s anthology. If any of this appeals to you, please apply by January 9th, 2011.

Email mays@varsity.co.uk with your contact details, areas you’d like to be involved in, telling us why and any relevant experience you might have. We’d love to hear from you!
