Special Monday Call for Submissions: HOAX
Only two weeks left to submit for Issue 6!
“We strongly encourage submissions from women, PoC, LGBTQIA people, differently-abled people and other underrepresented people and minorities.
HOAX is a counter-argument to the commonplace notion that art and creative writing are mutually exclusive. We champion all creative work that incorporates text in some way. HOAX is an artist-run, printed journal dedicated to publishing creative works incorporating text. Issue 6 will be available in galleries, bookshops and creative spaces across Europe, North America and Asia.
Started in early 2012, HOAX is an independent, artist-led project providing a space in print and online to show all forms of creative work incorporating text alongside each other without prejudice or predefined “rules” about the look, format, content or execution of the work. Our output is the weekly publication of new work to our website, alongside a free-of-charge, one-sheet print edition featuring works by artists/writers throughout the world, of which each issue is curated to be strong, dynamic, interesting and innovative.
We publish new work to our website every Thursday and a new printed issue every 6 months, with side-projects in between.”
Issue 6 submissions deadline Monday 6 July 2015
We are always accepting submissions to the HOAX website.
“We are constantly seeking innovative and interesting new submissions for both our website and the publication itself. The website features a new work every Thursday; the printed publication currently comes out bi-annually but is set to increase to quarterly- please bear with us as our reach grows!
Anyone can submit creative work incorporating text for either the publication or the website at any time by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org, providing the work is previously unpublished and created relatively recently. We strongly encourage submissions from women, PoC, LGBTQIA people, differently-abled people and other underrepresented people and minorities. There are no themes or briefs, however we do recommend that you read our manifesto before submitting work so that you have a good understanding of the project and its intentions.
All submissions for the print publication will be printed only in black ink and must be able to be confined to one side of A5 paper (if your work can’t fit this, please see below). Any work that doesn’t fit the print guidelines for the publication itself (above) will be taken as submissions for the website. Submissions for the website can take the form of images, text, video or sound files. There is no minimum or maximum size.
Image files must be large and of good quality; text files must be properly formatted as you would like them to appear to a viewer- we recommend that you also send a screenshot of the text file so that this can be as accurate as possible; video files are best uploaded to a hosting site (e.g. Youtube) and then the links sent to us.
When submitting work, please include (where possible):
– Your name
– The title of the piece
– A link to your professional website
Please send submissions to email@example.com
Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we will only contact you if and when we would like to publish your work, however all submissions will be held onto for possible future publishing as appropriate to the project’s curation. Please do not expect an immediate reply. If you would like to withdraw a submission for any reason please notify us via email.
