Submission guidelines

Submissions for issue 3 are now closed! Thank you for submitting, keep an eye out on social media and here for news about future submission opportunities.


All submissions must be sent as a Word document using our submission form.

We ask that all written submissions are set in a basic font: (Times New Roman, Arial, Georgia) 12pt and double-spaced for fiction and non-fiction, single-spaced for poetry. Submissions must be written in UK spelling and grammar.


We do not accept submissions that have been published elsewhere, in other magazines, websites, books or anthologies. We will consider submissions that have been published on a personal blog or your personal social media accounts.

We accept simultaneous submissions, however please let us know if your piece has been accepted somewhere else as soon as possible.

We pay a £5 fee per submission via PayPal. Additionally, all contributors will receive a free digital copy of the magazine they are featured in. As this is our first issue to go to print, each contributor will be able to purchase a physical copy at a reduced price: printing cost + shipping cost.

We aim to reply to submissions within 2-4 weeks, however, depending on the volume we receive this may take longer. We do not reply to spam submissions or if it’s obvious you haven’t read the guidelines.


You may only submit to one category at a time per submission window.


There are two subcategories you can submit to:

For short stories, we are looking for fiction pieces between 1,500 and 4,000 words in any genre, albeit we prefer folklore, gothic, fabulism, magic realism, weird and mysterious works. We encourage you to think outside the box. Be brave & have fun!

For vignettes, we are looking for pieces up to 300 words which capture the essence of the sea, brief but evocative, like a message in a bottle.

We do not accept erotica, racist, anti-LGBTQIA+ or any kind of hateful work that intends to harm.


Creative non-fiction pieces should be between 800 and 2,500 words. They can be creative and personal essays, nature writing, historical & travel pieces, or evocative accounts of true stories. We are looking for more than a factual journalistic perspective.


Poetry submissions should be no longer than 35 lines. We are open to experimentation with the layout of a poem, but this is not a requirement. The magazine layout will be a standard A4.

You can submit up to three poems per submission window. Please include all poems in one document.

To submit, please use our new submission form. Once the submission window is closed the form will no longer accept responses.

To help make paying for submissions possible, you can buy us a virtual coffee.
