Submissions

We accept submissions of non-fiction, fiction and poetry. You don’t need to be previously published to write for us; all you need is an active imagination and a passion for writing.

As a literary platform, much of our content focuses on literature, arts and culture, but we’re interested in a variety of topics and writing styles. Every writer is different and it’s important to us that the writer’s individual voice shines through each piece. What matters most is ensuring the work we publish is elegantly written and thought-provoking.

As a volunteer-led publication, sadly we are unable to offer payment for contributions at the present time. For anyone looking to contribute for portfolio-building purposes, we do offer a link to your online portfolio and social media platforms attached to the piece.

 

Word Count Guidelines

Non-fiction: Between 800 to 2,000 words.

Fiction: No longer than 4,000 words.

Poetry: No longer than 40 lines.
