Guidelines

Guidelines

We are looking for stories  and articles that surprise, inform, engage or entertain the reader – we appreciate boldness and originality, honesty, and eloquence.

Submit your best, but don’t worry too much about it.  If you have something interesting to say, and your writing is good overall, we will work with you on developing your material for publication. You might like to take advantage of our editing service.

Please don’t submit writing that incites hatred or violence towards others, or sexism, racism etc.  (Unless your work’s internal logic depends upon portraying these unsavoury aspects, e.g, a convincing portrait of a character who says and does things that offend.  Don’t aim for politically correct prose or dialogue at the expense of honesty).

Fiction/Poetry

Generally 1,000 words to 5,000 in length. If your work is intriguing, we will publish it regardless of length, although we may do this in instalments.

Feel free to send us your collections of poems, we will publish up to three at any given time.

Travel Writing

We appreciate an entertaining travelogue peppered with anecdotes about your experiences, and/or useful information on the location. Make sure to send photos to go with the text.

Interviews

Anyone interesting, send a photo too.

Eligibility

We won’t publish work that is already published elsewhere. (Knowingly)
