Magazine Guidelines

Submissions CLOSED

 

Submissions closed November 20th 2021, midnight GMT. This date has been brought forward due to unprecedented submission numbers, so that we can keep to our 5 week response time. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. 

 

The theme will be 'Power'. Contributors will be paid £20 if accepted.

What comes to your mind when we say: 'Power'?

Think internal/external, physical/emotional. Think relationships, power and governmental structures, influence, class. What empowers us/what oppresses us? 

We want personal interpretations of power, from the light-hearted to pieces of art and writing which shout from the rooftops; from the physical to the abstract.

General Info for the Magazine: 

The magazine will be available to download as an ebook or  a print edition. Contributors will receive a free PDF download, will be paid £20, and will be able to purchase any print copies desired at a 15% discount.

Submissions will be forever free - but please consider buying a book or ebook from the Fly on the Wall shop as without this the press cannot survive! Reading our magazines will give you an idea of the styles we love to publish. If you are based outside of the UK, please note that we can only pay royalties via PayPal.
