About

First published in 2007, the University of Sydney Anthology is an annual publication that showcases the creative works of staff, students and alumni of the University of Sydney. It is a yearly project run by students of the postgraduate publishing degree. Each anthology features a foreword written by a renowned literary figure, who in the past included Ceridwen Dovey, Kate Forsyth, PM Newton, Mark Tredinnick, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and Prof. Larissa Behrendt among others. It is a great opportunity to get published and contribute to a discussion and creative exploration of important issues of our times.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Anthology team at syd.anthology@gmail.com or via our Facebook page.
