Etchings - Fiction Poetry Essays Photography Art

ETCHINGS is a quality publication with an international focus, dedicated to showcasing new work by emerging and established writers and artists.

Etchings is an Australian journal and...well...pretty much everything that needs to be said is already said in its guidelines :)

All unsolicited submissions must be unpublished.

We also accept electronic submissions, particularly from overseas contributors. Format: RTF for writing, and 300 dpi for images (JPG preferred).

All accepted work will need to be submitted in electronic format: RTF or PDF for writing, and 300 dpi for images (JPG preferred).

Please limit submissions to three prose pieces (max 5000 words per piece), or three images. Poetry submissions should include at least three, but no more than six poems.

Contributors are paid AU$75 and receive one copy of the issue they appear in. (For poetry, this fee covers three to five pages of poems; a fee of AU$35 is paid for poems up to two pages.) Please note: Australian contributors are paid by cheque. International contributors are paid via PayPal secure payment services.

Email electronic submissions to: etchings@ilurapress.com
Oh yea, Etchings publishes themed issues, so be sure you are submitting the right kind of work. However, the site says that if it doesn't match the current issue, it'll be saved for the next issue's consideration.
The themes are intended as starting points only, and they can be interpreted in many different ways.
 Good Luck :)

Right...one more thing: For examples, there are sample pages from the current and back issues available on the site!
