Call for Submissions

Pink Cover is a zine for works across all creative mediums exploring the sentimental, domestic, sensitive, nostalgic, emotional, erotic, sensual, romantic sad, joyful and in between moments in life. If you’ve ever been told, or thought to yourself, this work is not significant, then we want to see it, because universality is a myth, and we want to know about all of the particularities of experience. Deeply.

Submissions are open for issue #1 until Friday, October 27th (although if you miss the submission by just a little bit and send a nice email, we’ll probably still look at it. We’re not so big on rules).


  • Short Fiction/Non Fiction (one piece per submission period up to (around) 1,000 words)
  • Poetry (no more than three poems per submission period)
  • Photography (send as many as you like)
  • Other – collage, drawing, painting or anything else that can be presented in print (send whatever you like provided it can be sent digitally)

Issue #1 will be published in print and digitally in late November 2017.

At the moment, we can’t pay contributors, but we will cover all editorial and design costs, and any proceeds from the zine that a writer sells will remain the property of the writer. Cool, right?
