  • Eligibility

    Creators w/ disabilities18+
    We only publish and accept work from individuals that identify as neurodivergent and/or disabled. We believe that neurodivergence is a large umbrella term and identity label (not a diagnostic label), and that self-diagnosis is valid and necessary. We encourage and welcome artists and writers with a wide array of disabilities and or neurodivergences.

  • Formatting

    Please use an easily readable font, and font size. 1.15 spacing.

  • Author's rights

    Copyright remains with artist, writer. We only retain electronic and/or print rights as is appropriate for the given issue.

  • Additional info

    We have not yet tracked our acceptance rates (will work on this more to be transparent), but generally if it resonates with us, we will find a space for it in our magazine. Our issues sometimes tend to get very long because we want to be able to publish and include as many submissions as possible. Submissions will never be rejected for not completely complying with these guidelines. They make our job as editors easier, but we want to be as accessible as possible for artists and writers. If you're having trouble submitting, feel free to email us or reach out to us on our Instagram page.
