April 4. 2018. Thank you for the submissions. The window is now closed and we will be reading and responding to the submissions and should get back to people by June latest.

We do not generally accept open submissions for either publications or exhibitions. However in 2018 we are operating an open submission window from February 1 - April 1 for works of fiction in 2019. We are interested in fiction in particular, looking at political, environmental and sexual perspectives that push the boundaries both formally and with regard to content.
