Issue 2: Spring 2021
Submissions close 23:59 GMT on the 28th February 2021
As always, we’re looking to publish innovative writing which is food-themed or -related (think implements, appetite, absence of food), and which evokes or surprises.
We have an appetite for creative food writing in all its forms: poetry, short or flash fiction, nonfiction, essays, and reviews. Hybrid and experimental writing existing outside standardised formal boundaries is encouraged.
Work should be not have been previously published.
Please submit your work in a .docx file format:
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading SUBMISSION.
Please include in the body of the email:
A short (50-word) biography is also welcome — you’ll need one if your work is published.
No simultaneous submissions, and please don’t submit more than once per submission window. We will get back to you as soon as possible once submissions have closed.
We are committed to representing the diversity of the writing community, and as such particularly encourage submissions from Black writers, and writers in underrepresented and/or minority groups. We are also willing to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate any individual requirements of disabled writers and those with health conditions. If you’re in doubt, just get in contact using the contact sheet here or via the email address above.
Note: SPOONFEED is not a specifically vegan publication, but does subscribe to vegan values. We therefore ask submissions to be respectful/compassionate in any mentions of animal products. We do of course appreciate nuance and ambiguity.
Note 2: SPOONFEED is a food-positive publication. Body shaming, etc., won’t be published (obviously). Neither will work expressing or platforming views which are racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise harm marginalised peoples and communities.
Note 3: Being a not-for-profit magazine run on a voluntary basis, we regret that SPOONFEED is not currently in a position to pay contributors for their work. We are working on being able to offer payment in the future.
Copyright for all work remains with the author thereof and any requests to reprint should be made directly.
