About The Carrot


The Carrot is part of New Writing Cumbria’s young writers’ project, Rabbit Rabbit (rabbit). (Carrots… rabbits… they kind of go together.)

It’s a celebration of the best new writing in Cumbria, submitted by Cumbrian writers of all ages, and selected by a group of young editors.

You might have noticed: it’s also a writing magazine with a bit of a difference.

Firstly, it is an online magazine. Digital. Not book shaped. Hence why you’ve ended up on this web page. This means that we can showcase writing in other ways. Like music and film. (After all, even films without dialogue are scripted.)

Secondly, it doesn’t just feature writing. We hope this will allow it to appeal to people who might not initially think they’re interested in writing. (The more people who stumble on our words, the better, right?) So if you weren’t looking for literature, but you’ve found your way here by some other means: welcome!

Rabbit Rabbit (rabbit) and The Carrot are funded by Arts Council Grants for the Arts. New Writing Cumbria is managed and supported by Eden Arts.

    Hi – just wondering how submissions to the Carrot works? There doesn’t seem to be any submissions information on the site, or am I missing something?

    I have really enjoyed reading ‘ The Carrot’ and am honoured to have two poems included. It is attractive, well laid out and easy to navigate.
    Long may it continue. Great work. AB
