Elbow Room is OPEN to submissions.

Elbow Room does not have any specific theme for submissions.

Please email all submissions and any questions to: elbowroomsubmissions@gmail.com (Please remember that you are submitting your work to real people, it makes a huge difference receiving politely worded submissions!)

All submissions need to include brief artists bio.

Please include your name on all work.

Please send your work as an attachment.

If sending multiple files we have found WeTransfer works best: www.wetransfer.com

Please only send .doc, .docx, .jpeg or .tiff files.

We will acknowledge receipt of your work within a couple of days but please bear with us while we fully consider your work as this process can take time.

 

Some General Guidelines:

Please submit a brief project outline and short artist bio with all work- 30-to-60 words max. Please include links to publications or your blog or your website.

Please DO NOT submit work that includes copyright material (such as pictures) belonging to other people/third parties unless you can supply us with written authorisation by that person/third party.

As the artist you retain full copyright in your work. By submitting work to Elbow Room you are merely granting a non-exclusive right to reproduce your work.

Unlike many magazines, webzines and competition organisers we don’t care if a piece has been previously published elsewhere – providing the artist still retains copyright. However, we obviously cannot remove something once it is printed, so please consider this carefully with any work you a submitting to more than one place. We am happy to try and be accommodating but the less hassle the better for everyone.

This is an entirely self funded venture so Elbow Room does not pay for submissions.
