Further details & submissions guidelines

Please send us your work by midnight on Friday 30th August 2019.

We are looking for original and unpublished work.

Simultaneous submissions are fine but do let us know as soon as possible if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

Written submissions should be no longer than 3000 words in total.

If you have a pitch for a piece longer than this, or an idea for an interview or similar, do get in touch first.

For visual submissions, please either send us a link to a dropbox file or wetransfer (where appropriate).

It would be good if the image resolution was at print quality (so 300dpi and for printing around A5 size). Additionally, any information about how you might envisage the work on or interacting with the page in print is encouraged but not essential.
