Urban Graffiti currently accepts unsolicited electronic submissions. If we don’t know you, and you think we should, please use the contact form to tell us about yourself, and send us links to some sample work.
When submitting work, PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES BELOW and make sure to include a bio, a photo and both an email and mailing address with all electronic submissions.
Please send a one-paragraph or so bio. Include links to any blogs or websites you are part of, achievements, publications, any other links you think appropriate or relevant.
Descriptions of Work/Artist Statement
All contributors of music, video, artwork and other what-not, please include in a description of the work or some kind of artistic statement. Musicians, if you have album cover artwork, please include that! As well, any other pertinent information you think should be included to describe the work is appreciated.
Listings in Urban Graffiti require a lead time of a minimum of seven to ten days. Please include all relevant information and web links.
Video or Audio of written work
Links to Youtube or Vimeo or whatever of you performing your submitted piece are welcomed.
Submit no more than 3 short stories or essays. A maximum of 10 pages altogether. We are considering poetry, though we reject far more than we accept.
At present, individuals should post to Youtube or Vimeo and we’ll just embed a link from there.
Submit artwork in print-ready format – eg. TIF, PNG or high-quality JPEG at 300 dpi on an 8.5″ x 11″ page.
All of our promotion is done via word of mouth and on Facebook. On publication, we’ll send you a link to your piece for you to post on your FB wall.
Payment will be made in copies only (this is only applicable to future hard copies published in print).
Ownership of all submissions reverts to the authors upon publication. Please do note, however, that we reserve the right to publish in various formats – web, print, Kindle, etc – both known and unknown media etc., and to use any published or unpublished submissions as part of future anthologies.
