Egg Box is a society that promotes the creation of any kind of publication. We're passionate about drawing, writing, making and printing, and we're here to provide a hub for creative projects and collaboration at UEA!
Last year, our predecessors took over the running of Egg Box Publishing, the publishing house set up by UEA lecturers that prints university publications, and we want you to help us build it into an exciting student-run publishing house!
We decide on submission criteria, edit, design and organise the printing and distribution of the annual Undergraduate Creative Writing anthology which we sell on our website and is also available for the public to buy from the Norwich branch of Waterstones - this is great experience for anyone considering a career in Publishing and looks fantastic on a CV. It's also great fun!
Aside from the official anthology, we help our members publish everything from chapbooks to zines, booklets and flyers. We publish regular collaborative zines which welcome contributions of all kinds.
We host a number of events and socials on campus and further afield. For example, last year we visited and had stalls at several local print fairs where we met a wide range of authors, artists and craftspeople, and took a trip to the Jarrolds Print Museum in the city where we were shown how commercial printing techniques have evolved through the years.
We also attend UEA enterprise fairs to sell our zines and run workshops on campus where anyone is free to collaborate and experiment with ideas they have, and to get help with their own self-publishing projects – keep an eye on our Facebook page for details.
Please feel free to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or ideas you might have and a member of the committee will get back to you as soon as possible!
We look forward to meeting you and hearing your ideas!
