CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

普通話

Contributors identifying with the BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ communities are of particular interest, in addition to those identifying as living with a disability, those identifying as women, and those advocating for marginalized communities.

We are looking for creative works in a variety of forms (painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, graphic design, printmaking, videos, sound art, poetry, fiction, essays, documentaries, rants, manifestos, thoughts) that illustrate how one engages with the world in the 21st century.

We are interested in works that focus on the following: activism, climate justice, racism, disability, diaspora, feminism, consumerism, capitalism, gender identity, memory, geopolitics, personal identity, family, mental health, religion, relationships, your favourite colour and why it’s red, your tea of choice, what bike routes you prefer, why you favour winter over summer, what age you relate the phrase “settling down” with, your favourite typeface, your professor’s favourite typeface, and more.

Above are only examples of topics of interest. We are excited by work that coincides with thinking and walking (briskly or slowly) through life.


WORKS OF ALL LANGUAGES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR SELECTION.


SUBMIT BY AUGUST 27 (MIDNIGHT) LATEST.

SEND ALL SUBMISSIONS TO dialoguesjournalonline@gmail.com



Though likely productive of the sort of conversation the team at Dialogues seeks, not every single submission may be published. This is not a judgement on the work’s quality, but rather a reflection of the journal’s overall vision. We encourage all applicants to continuously apply. Due to the nature of the jurying process, the team cannot provide individual feedback to applicants not accepted. If your work is rejected, please find other ways to disseminate it
