Artist Sketching

we're back for our second annual publication, and we're so excited! 


our submission period for will be open from july 1st to august 15th. any emails that we receive after august 15th will not be reviewed.

we accept all visual and written art forms, with exception to video.

submission requirements:

  • for poetry: please submit a single document which can include a maximum of 5 poems

  • for fiction, nonfiction, creative nonfiction, and scripts: we ask that submissions don't exceed 7 pages and are contained to a single document

  • for visual art: please submit your image(s) as an attachment to the email at 300 dpi or greater

  • please attach all documents directly to your email submission

  • only one submission is allowed per reading period

  • we do not consider previously published work, but we do accept simultaneous submissions. just let us know if a piece that you've sent to us has been accepted elsewhere 


we do not sell our issues or profit off of publications. we exist as a community platform and do not have funds to pay contributors.

we do request first serial rights, which is just a fancy way to say that we will be the first people to publish your art, and ownership reverts directly back to you after the issue runs. this means that we will not own your art, because it's yours!
