At Zoomorphic we curate writing that celebrates, challenges and deepens our connection with wildlife and the more-than-human world. It is our belief that to defend non-human species it is essential that we reconnect our imaginations to them. This is especially urgent in an age of biodiversity declines and habitat destruction. We are looking for writing that relates to these principles.
Submissions from writers of essays and fiction are always welcome. We are also keen to hear from artists whose work shares our ethic.
Poetry submissions are currently closed. We will announce the re-opening of the submissions window on our social media pages.
If you would like to contribute please send your work to:
Please send your work as a word (doc/docx) attachment or as a pdf file and use your own name as the name of the file – for example: Mary_Jones.docx. Use Times New Roman, 12pt. Please type “Submission” and also your name in the subject line of your email.
Fiction and non-fiction: Please send 1 piece of between 500 and 3000 words, with a very short synopsis at the top. lnclude a short biography of up to 50 words.
Art: From our next issue we will be featuring artists whose work has strong ecological themes and concerns wild animals. If you are a visual artist in any medium we would be delighted to hear from you.
We will reply to you as soon as possible. Zoomorphic is run on a voluntary basis and we unfortunately do not have time to give feedback on submissions unsuitable for the magazine.
Images: We welcome the submission of accompanying images with your work but please only send images if you are the copyright holder, if you have permission from the copyright holder or if the image is sourced in the public domain. Please follow this link if you are uncertain about the ethical use of images in digital publications. The design, layout and use of images for each published piece is at the editor’s discretion.
Please note: Zoomorphic is a free magazine and we cannot offer payment for any published work at this time, but we will credit your work and provide links to titles, blogs, publishers and conservation organisations. All copyright remains with authors and artists.
We look forward to working with you!
