Please submit all work here.

Send us a pitch, regardless if you will be submitting completed work.

Pitches will need to include a brief description of your prospective or completed work, including your medium and any relevant links for reference.

Once we have received your pitch, we will review it and reply as soon as we can. If you haven’t received a response in a couple of weeks, please follow up with us.

If your pitch is accepted, you will receive feedback, a submission deadline, and a word count.

Whenever your work is referenced by our collateral platforms (i.e. Instagram), we will always credit you.

NOTE: Your byline will say “Guest Contributor”, but you will be credited in a blurb at the very beginning of your work. This blurb may also contain 1-2 sentences about you, taken from the submission form you fill out.


Who does Spicy Zine take submissions from?
Spicy Zine only takes submissions from self-identifying women of color and queer + trans people of color.

Who runs Spicy Zine?
Spicy is run by a team of 13 voluntary editors, writers, videographers, photographers, graphic designers, and illustrators. We all work on Spicy Zine in addition to our full-time jobs or schoolwork. You can learn more about us here.

Will Spicy Zine republish content? And can I re-publish my Spicy Zine content?
Unfortunately, we do not accept already published content. However, after we publish content from guest contributors, we do allow them to re-publish their work.

Is my content guaranteed to get published?
We hope so! If for some reason it isn’t published, we will let you know why.

What kind of work can I submit?
We take articles, short essays/think pieces, creative writing pieces (poetry, short stories), video, photo, illustrations, paintings, and more. If you aren’t sure, please specify your medium when you fill out the submission form.
