Submit to no Master!
but submit to us!
We are always looking for content for our magazine. Two points to keep in mind before submitting: we publish under Creative Commons
licensing (see below), and we compensate you no more than we compensate ourselves (which is to say, you will receive no money for your work). We apply our issue’s theme lightly, and non-themed work is accepted as well.

The theme for next issue is “The Sky Is Falling” and the deadline for submissions is August 15th, 2007.

Fiction: We appreciate well-written, grammatically consistent fiction. Certainly, we are suckers for 19th century prose styles, but we do not limit ourselves to this. We are more interested in representing the under-classes, the exploited, rather than the exploiters.
We have no interest in misogynistic or racist work. We will work with fiction of nearly any length, although works longer than about 5-6 thousand words will probably be split up over multiple issues. We have volunteer fiction editors who, if you would like, can provide feedback on your work; other than this, we will only edit lightly and will always check with you before any changes are made. Submissions can be in .rtf or .doc format attached to email.

Illustration: We maintain a list of illustrators who are interested
in helping us. Rather than accepting submitted art, we show artists a list of upcoming articles and see what they are interested in illustrating. Due to our printing constraints, we are only interested in black & white artwork, and we are particularly interested in work that reproduces easily, without much greyscale.

How-tos: We are always looking for people who have mad scientist
skills to share. We are interested in nearly every form of DIY, although engineering, crafts, and fashion are particularly dear to us. We can help adapt things to print format, if you need.

Comics: We would love to run more. Contact us!

Reviews: We accept books, movies, comics, RPGs, music, etc. for review (as well as free tickets to shows!). In addition, if there is something that you would like to review, we accept reviews written by others. Just don’t go around reviewing your own stuff. That ain’t fair.

Fashion: We are more interested in DIY skill-sharing than the exhibition
of existing work. If you want to share patterns or tips for clothing, hair or accessories, then please let us know!

Ads: We are not interested in running advertisements at this time.

Other: Surprise us! We’re nicer people than we sound like.
