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!
A few years ago, our predecessors took over the running of Egg Box Publishing, an arm of the UEA Publishing Project set up by 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, design, edit and organise the printing and distribution of the annual Undergraduate Creative Writing Anthology which we sell on our website and is also available from the Norwich branch of Waterstones and many other places including Amazon - this is great experience for anyone considering a career in Publishing and looks fantastic on a CV. It's also great fun, with a glitzy launch event in the city to celebrate our hard work!
Aside from the official anthology, we help our members publish everything from chapbooks to zines, booklets and flyers. We publish collaborative zines as a society which welcome contributions of all kinds. If you have any ideas for themes we'd love to hear them!
We host a number of events and socials on campus and further afield to connect our members and find out more about the publishing industry. For example, we have had stalls at several local print fairs where we met a wide range of authors, artists and craftspeople, and have co-hosted socials with other societies like Creative Writing and Blog Society.
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 group and Instagram for details about these including our first zine workshop which will be a Do Something Different session between 1pm and 3pm on Wednesday 26th September.
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 seeing your ideas!
