Current Submission Guidelines:

Published artists and writers are invited to pitch us on ‘Deliciously Vile Frontiers’. We want to hear about art and ideas that push the boundaries of what’s beautiful and what’s ugly: bodies, relationships, and landscapes, or reclaiming of older frontiers across the arts. Anything that celebrates and challenges notions of ‘ugly’, ‘vile’ and ‘frontier’.

We’re looking for photography, art, memoir & non-fiction (1600 words), arts reviews (800 words) and Q&As and interviews with artists, musicians and writers around forthcoming releases (1500 words). We love poetry, short fiction (2000 words) and opinions that feel fresh, well-written and illustrated by cultural facts.

Closing date: 18 May 2022

The Important Stuff:

How to submit: use the contact form below, or the contact form via the hamburger icon. Title your submission ‘Pitch’. We try to respond to every submission. If you’ve not heard within a fortnight, we’re unable to accept your pitch at this time.

Writers, please note: when you pitch, we’d love to see examples of your published work. We will ask you to write to an agreed word count and deadline. We often request edits. We reseve the right to title the article in keeping with our house style. Please link to one of your published pieces.

Artists, Photographers, Image Flaneurs: you should have already had some work shared with the public through professional publishing or art shows. Please link to some of your work.

Please read previous issues before pitching!

We only publish original artwork & interviews not previously published or shared on social media. You will be featured, if you wish, in our ‘Who We Are’ contributors’ page and on our social media.

We are currently self-funded by our collective, so thank you fees range from £15-£35, according to whether your piece is largely visual, a Q&A, a flowing copy interview, non-fiction, poetry or original fiction.
