Deadline: 28 February 2022  

We are seeking submissions in the form of audio samples and/or written proposals for audio content. We welcome formats from readings to field recordings, music, soundworks and all things in between, as well as proposals for longer forms such as interviews, conversations or podcasts.

For interviews & longer formats: Please send an outline of no more than 400 words including details about participants and a proposed recording schedule. Where relevant please include links to previous works. Text files as PDFs or Word Docs. 

For everything else: Please send a brief description of no more than 100 words and a short audio sample (up to 4 minutes). Sound files as MP3 or MP4 or links to files hosted online.    

Please title each submission file with your name (example: Jane_Smith.mp3). 

Whilst we cannot offer a fee for those works selected from this Open Call, there is the possibility of developing selected works towards contributions to future issues of the print journal for which we pay a fee of between £100-£200 per piece. 

We value every submission made, although we cannot publish all the work we receive we are happy to give feedback for all submissions on request. The best way to get a sense of the kind of work we publish is to buy a copy of a previous issue! (concessions available).

We are keen to be inclusive communicators, if you have any communication related access needs, please feel free to share via:

Submissions to the print publication are now closed. We will be opening again for submissions early in 2022.
