Art

Max pieces: 5

This encompasses digital and traditional art, as well as 3D creations such as sculptures / jewellery / ceramics. Please endeavour to take the best possible photos – no matter how brilliant your art, a fuzzy or poor quality image means we’ll have to pass.

Photography

Max pieces: 5

We’re especially interested in the intimate, the personal, the emotional. Images that grab our hearts in their fists and squeeze.

How to submit

  • Processs

    Google / other forms

  • Cover letter

    We’d like to get to know you, and for our readers to get to know you as well. So tell us a little bit about yourself – your previous artistic experience, where else you have been published or where you’ve shown your work, and anything interesting you’re working on at the moment. It’s also fun to mention what you like doing outside of creating! Feel free to mention your hobbies, your pets, your quirks.

  • Eligibility

    18+
    Anyone over 18 can submit to Teiresian! We’re particularly eager to share work by trans and queer creators, but everyone of all identities is welcome.

  • Formatting

    .doc, .docx or .pdf size 12pt any easy to read font

  • Author's rights

    Once we’ve published your work, all rights revert to the creator and you’re welcome to re-use that work however you like. If you’d like to credit Teiresian as having previously published that work, we’d appreciate it, but this isn’t necessary.
