SUBMITTING TO THE ZINE

Reality Hands has open submissions of text: short stories or essays or poetry. The zine is a pretty informal thing. Simultaneous submissions are fine. Please, no capitalists or bigots or jerks.

PAYMENT

Our pay rate for new work is $30 (U.S.) per piece, regardless of length or complexity.

GUIDELINES

Reality Hands is currently only interested in writing. We’re not interested in visual work right now. We think comics and asemic and typographical work is cool, but currently that’s not part of our curatorial framework.

  • Made of letters, line breaks/carriage returns, and punctuation
  • Left aligned and not justified
  • No weird formatting

WHAT TO SEND

In your email include the following,

  • Your submission in the file types below
  • A brief bio of roughly 50 words
  • Links to your social media
  • A short hello (We like it when people demonstrate that they’ve read the zine)

FILE TYPES

.doc
.docx
plain-text

RIGHTS

By publishing with us, you’re giving us the right to be the first publisher, and to publish and sell the work in indefinitely any media, form, or channel that we choose. This includes but is not limited to the following: the website’s zine, podcasts, anthologies, or anything else. After we first put the work out, the author can use their work as they like.

By submitting, the author attests that they own the rights to the work, that they claim all responsibility for legal action taken if the work turns out to be plagiarized.
