SUBMISSIONS

 

We love to encounter fresh new art and writing!

Our annual deadline is October 15.

You may submit work at any time, but please understand that you will not hear from us until after our deadline has passed. Applications received after October 15 will be considered as submissions for the following year. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.

 

Details:

• Selected contributors receive a stipend.
• While we generally produce a simple one-page print, we are open to ideas that push the boundaries of innovative print. Past issues have been accordion-folded, others have been assembled into small books, others still have folded into small paper sculptures.
• Are you a good fit? Before submitting, please review our past issues and learn more about us.

ARTISTS

Send the following to art@papirmass.com with the subject line ARTIST SUBMISSION

1. Up to 5 images of your work (max 1MB each). Please note that if selected you must be able to provide a high resolution file of the selected image. Read more about resolution here. Indicate if any of the submitted works have been licensed to apparel or print companies.

2. A brief biography: 75 – 250 words. Let us know who are, what you do, and what your “greatest hits” are. Art submissions are kind of like blind dating. Make us want to date you (but don’t lie!).

3. CV and contact information, including your website.

4. News of any upcoming exhibitions or events in the next year (optional).

WRITERS

Fiction / Essays / Poetry / Novel Excerpts / Critical texts / Graphic Novels / And other unimaginable things

Send the following to text@papirmass.com with the subject line AUTHOR SUBMISSION

We encourage simultaneous submissions, but please inform us immediately if your submission has been picked up by another publication (yay for you!).

1. Up to 5 works for consideration, up to 2,500 words each. There is no minimum word count: we are open to short and even very short works. Please indicate if any of the submitted works have appeared elsewhere. Critical and non-fiction writers may submit an abstract.

2. A brief biography: 75 – 250 words. Who are you, what do you do, why do you do what you do, notable achievements you have and places you have been published. Get creative, make us smile. Or be really serious if that’s the kind of writer you are. It’s all fair game.

3. CV and contact information, including your website.

4. News of any upcoming publications or readings in the next year (optional).

Applicants will be notified of results within 3 months of our October 15 deadline. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.

Meanwhile, please join our mailing list or follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
