Welcome to Particle, UNMC’s School of English online creative writing magazine, a literary journal open to students and staff from across the University of Nottingham’s three international campuses. We are delighted to include poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction by talented writers in Malaysia, China and the United Kingdom.

The magazine is put together by a team of staff and student editors who select and edit the submissions we receive.
