About the project

There are too many opportunities out there, and that's pretty damn overwhelming. Where to submit my new poem? Where to find an editor? I guess I need a website, but how are those created? Or like, how to get people to actually read my new story, and not just like the tweet about its acceptance?
In the end you still have no idea what to do with your silly little life, so you end up not doing anything at all 🤡

Which is stupid. You obviously want to be famous and accomplished and sexy, that’s why you have to make at least SOME progress, ok?

chill subs is here to help with that. We give you some very nice search tools and cool details about each opportunity which makes it really easy to actually take action. We're also here to promote the hell out of your work and help you connect with people. You can create a profile, add your publications and services, AND browse other profiles and their publications and services.

And we're only getting started.

Hit us up on Twitter or Instagram (and tag us if we managed to help you somehow🙂)

Self promo: you can also hire Karina for all the IT related work (building something, fixing your website, whatever), because why not? Cheap Polish developer here 😏
Help us relocate: Chill Subs wants to move to the UK/US. Poland is boring. I want to be where my community is, and be a part of the change in the local arts scene. Find out more here.
Let's collab! My goal is to make this place ridiculously big. So I need business development people, educators, video producers, everyone! Hopefully I'll be able to pay you all soon :D
