Submission Guidelines

We accept submissions on a rolling basis. Currently we do not have any competitions or themes running, so the pieces may be of any genre. Only students of Warwick University may submit pieces – to ensure this, we ask that you state your student number in your submission or use your university email address.

Prose: between 100 and 2,000 words. Fiction and non-fiction both accepted, though specify which your piece is in your submission email. Submissions preferred in 12pt font, Garamond/Times New Roman/Cambria, line spacing max 1.5.

Poetry: up to 70 lines. Multiple submissions accepted. Submissions preferred in 12pt font, Garamond/Times New Roman/Cambria. Concrete poems must be sent in 12pt Garamond.

Artwork: any kind of art, so long as the scan or photo is clean. We print black and white work within the magazine, while colour work can either be submitted as a potential front cover or to be featured online. Photography is accepted.

You may not submit more than one piece per category per edition, with the exception of poetry. Since poetry is shorter, you may submit two poems. However, you can submit across multiple categories (eg: one short story, one poem, and one photo). If your have pieces in the backlog, you may still submit a new piece for the next edition.

Work that does not fall into any of the categories above may be submitted, however it may be rejected if the editors feel that it does not fit with the tone of the magazine. We aim to respond to submissions within a week of the submission deadline. If you have not heard back within this time, let us know. We offer feedback upon request, and any piece that has been rejected in the past may be resubmitted after edits.

Please email all submissions to kamenamagazine@gmail.com.
