Issue #6 Call Out: Open for Submissions

 Pitch us, please! 

There are about a dozen slots for written and visual content and we pay $150 per commissioned piece. The best way to figure out what we want is to take a look at our previous issues. We do not accept completed submissions, but we do welcome emails with multiple pitch ideas. As with everything we do, we aim to present a magazine full of intersectional feminism. We also have a few international slots each issue.

 

Tips for written pitches 

  • There are plenty of other places that will publish general women’s interest and feminist content. We talk about women + work.
  • We prioritise primary sources – that means interviews and conversations where women speak for themselves. This is the main format we publish. These pieces are around 2000 words including an introduction and reflection.
  • If you have ideas for women to interview please tell us why you think you’re the best person for the job.
  • We also love pitches where writers offer to record guided conversations between two women about their shared expertise or experiences.
  • Other types of non-fiction (memoir, personal essay, narrative non-fiction, investigative journalism, or any combo of the above) are fine, but slots are limited to 2-3 per issue. These pieces are around 800 words.
  • We do not publish academic work, but will definitely consider an essay or report that requires some footnoting.

Tips for visual pitches 

We’d like to hear from photographers with ideas for image essays, and fashion shoots that are body-positive. Work that speaks to our themes (women + work) will be prioritised. We’re able to do illustrative work in-house so we don’t often commission this work. In your pitch please provide:

  • New concept for us to commission – can be an expansion of existing work.
  • Examples of your work so we can get an idea of what your piece would look like
  • Links to social media/website
  • As with all previous issues, we will need a Featured Artist. If you would like to be considered for the position, please let us know.

Email pitches for visual content to: anna[at]hotchickswithbigbrains.com

 

Timeline 

Deadline for pitches (both written and visual): WEDNESDAY 14 MARCH 5PM AEST There will then be 2 weeks to allow for the content to be created, meaning your deadline (if your pitch is accepted) is FRIDAY 30 MARCH 5PM. If you pitch us ideas, we will presume you are able to work to this timeline. Previous issues are available for purchase here.
