Want to contribute to Phox Pop magazine?
Our strapline is: thinkers, seekers, makers, doers – which means we publish work that tells stories of ambitious and inspiring people, and their creative and curious pursuits.
We don’t generally have a specific theme for each issue, but some over-arching topics we tend to cover include art, science, history, exploration, and experimentation. We like to think of ourselves as a cabinet of curiosity in paper and ink form.
We’re open to all sorts of submissions – written features, interviews or other articles; photography, illustration or other visual arts; poetry; short stories; surprise us! Just please note that a person/people should be at the heart of your pitch.
You can pitch us either a) something you want to write about/create for us, or b) something you have done or created which you want us to interview you about.
What: If you’ve got an idea, please email us a few sentences about it using the below form, and include a link to examples of your work.
When (for Issue 5): Please send your idea(s) to us by Friday 2 March, and if selected for publication (we’ll let you know my Monday 5 March), please be prepared to submit your finished piece(s) by Friday 30 March.
How much: As a self-funded, independent magazine, money is pretty tight. However, we do have a small budget to pay contributors who we commission to produce something for us (we’re not talking ‘cover your rent for a month’, more ‘buy yourself a takeaway and a nice bottle of wine’).
We look forward to hearing from you!
