SUBMITTING TO THE ZINE
Reality Hands has open submissions of text or visual art. The zine is a pretty informal thing. Simultaneous submissions are fine. Please, no capitalists or bigots or jerks.
Our pay rate for new work is $30 (U.S.) per piece, regardless of length or complexity.
TEXT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
We’re looking for original writing. The emotional payoffs we like are melancholy and haunting and weird.
Made of letters, line breaks/carriage returns, and punctuation
Left aligned and not justified
No weird formatting
No images embedded in the text
VISUAL ART GUIDELINES
We’re looking for original artwork that hasn’t been published. The general tone of the magazine is melancholy and haunting and weird. Artwork that is sequential or narrative is welcome but not required.
