Editor Lily Greenall said: “Pushing Out the Boat is a wonderful chance for both emerging and established writers and artists to be published in a high-quality magazine, with increasing circulation worldwide.

“Submitting work for consideration couldn’t be easier. Everything is online and people have until September 30 to send in their writing or artwork.”
