CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Calling all illustrators, writers, artists, and thinkers of any age and experience — Mighty Kind is open for submissions for the upcoming Issue 5: Home. Read below for dates, specifications, and more. Questions? Email us at email@example.com.
Issue 5: Home
Baseball players run toward it, we are almost all quarantined in it, and they say there is no place sweeter... That's right, in Issue 5 we are talking about HOME! We are excited to explore the idea of home beyond just the construct of a building.
Content Submissions (Writers and Illustrators)
We are not accepting general content submissions at this time.
December 31, 2020
Please use our online form to submit your pitch/draft/or illustration concept by December 31, 2020. Include a paragraph summarizing your idea, why you’re the person who should write/illustrate it, and a few examples of similar work, if relevant. Anyone over the age of 12 is welcome to submit.
Please use our submissions form only. We do not consider work submitted through Mighty Kind’s social media or other email accounts. If you feel your submission falls in both written and illustrated categories, please just pick one category and explain on the entry form.
We’re a small (but mighty!) editorial staff, so while we try to respond to all submissions, we’re not always able to do so personally or immediately. We aim to send replies within two months of receiving a submission.
Kid Submissions (12 and under)
Do you love to draw, write, and be creative? In every issue of Mighty Kind, we feature work from kid-readers like you! We are currently accepting stories and artwork in any medium on the topic of home-- both as a place and a feeling.
For short responses, please answer the question "What makes you feel at home?" If longer writing is more your thing, you can write a poem or a short story about what it home feels like to you. You can also draw a picture of yourself at home with who makes you feel at home. Please use bright and dark colors so we can see it clearly! We love to see what you come up with!
Grown-ups, please use the link below to upload high-resolution scans or photos of the finished piece along with your little artist's first name, age, and hometown by December 31, 2020.
*Because of the volume of submissions, we may not be able to include all submissions sent to us.
