Life is full of things we have to do.
We have to write essays, meet deadlines, reach targets, pass exams, impress our managers. We also have to know who we are, where we’re going and how to cope in the big, real world either after we leave school, or after we leave uni.
But underneath this list of things we have to do, are the things we want to do: the things we enjoy, are passionate about, love and want to share; the artistic, cathartic and eye-opening magic that is creativity, which we either chose to consume or make.
While studying for our Creative Writing and Media degrees, our days were overtaken by writing the things we had to. We’ve always been huge lovers of creativity, be it through a pen or through a lens, and we needed a release, an escape and platform for us and our friends to release their creativity and embrace a passion for writing.
Surrounded by writing-lovers and creators on our course, as well as inspiring and passionate people studying other degrees and out in the workplace, it soon sunk in that the internet lacked a space, a community, for us all to escape the ‘have to’s and embrace our love of writing, reading, sharing and creativity. We needed a platform for people to write, share and grow.
And so, Forever Endeavour was born.
Forever Endeavour is an online, creative writing magazine, featuring fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We want Forever Endeavour to be a go-to space for writers and other creatives to share their work with a wider audience.
Forever Endeavour is dedicated to giving a platform and voice to creatives, where we can claw back a part of the internet to be free with our ideas, surrounded by a community of enthusiastic writers and readers.
The site runs off submissions from passionate people, whether writing is a small or big part of their life. You don’t have to be a professional or have any experience at all. If you have an idea and the desire to create, this is your space and we are your people. There is no deadline for submissions and you can send over any writing at any time.
Forever Endeavour was founded by two passionate Creative Writing graduates, keen to help bring your ideas and stories to life. All submissions will be read by us and any spelling or grammar issues ironed out before they are published on the site. We are keen to build a strong network of creatives together and are excited to welcome anyone interested in writing to the magazine. So have no fear if you have little experience, or even none! Just give it a go, or send over an idea you’re mulling over, and we’ll be happy to help.
So, in a world where young people, students, graduates and new writers are drowned out by offices full of journalists and the success and experience of existing authors, Forever Endeavour is your chance to float.
What are you waiting for?
