Foxhole zine is an occasional, print only publication featuring fiction, non-fiction, photography and art.
SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR VOLUME 5 – THE YOUTH ISSUE
We are seeking a variety of submissions on the subject of ‘youth’–these can be visual, written or a combination of both. Please feel free to interpret the theme any way you see fit – this could include memories of the past, thoughts about the future, visions of the present or aspects of youth culture. The more variety the better!
We are looking for the following:
Illustration / art / visual art
Random combinations of the above
While previous issues have featured long form pieces and interviews, the new page count won’t allow for many of these and we’d also like to feature the work of as many people as possible, so please bear this in mind when submitting (depending on the response, we’re hoping to give contributors 1-3 pages each)
There are no submission fees or reading fees or any of that nonsense. Unfortunately, we’re not able to pay for submissions either but each contributor will receive a copy of the zine and as much promotion as we can manage. The zine will also be available at numerous book fairs across the UK.
You are welcome to submit work that has been published previously elsewhere, as long as the previous publisher doesn’t have exclusivity.
If you are an illustrator and would like to provide an illustration for a short story or poem, please drop us a line and we’ll be in touch once we’ve reviewed the relevant submissions.
All visual content should be sent as 300dpi jpegs, either as attachments or via Dropbox or WeTransfer, and should work on an A5 page.
All text documents should be sent as Word documents.
If your submission is a series of images (for example), please let us know the overall title, as well as any individual titles.
Please also include a short, third person bio and any social media handles and websites, in case your work is chosen. Don’t worry if you don’t like writing about yourself, just send include the basic information and we’ll tidy it up when we go to print. Long bios may be edited down to the essentials (the current format has a strict page limit and we’d like to feature as much work as possible).
The deadline for submissions is July 25th, 2019. The intention is to get the issue ready in time for our next event, the London Art Book Fair at Whitechapel Gallery in September, though the deadline may be extended if required.
Please send all submissions to email@example.com - we’ll try to get back to you one way or another as soon as we can, but please bear with us and also check your junk folder from time to time, as our emails seem to end up there for some reason.
Off you go then!
