Abstract Watercolor Drawing



At Re-side we're looking for writing that resides outside of the norm. We are especially interested in work that pushes the boundaries of identity and questions that status quo. 

We are a quarterly, themed online literary and arts magazine. 

Submissions are open as follows:
May for ISSUE #10 (THEME - YELLOW)
August for ISSUE #11 (THEME TBC)

November for ISSUE #12 (THEME TBC)

February for ISSUE #013 (THEME - TBC) 

We accept anything creative: articles, think pieces, poetry, prose, art, photography, personal essays. Send us anything that makes you feel something. If you have any questions about whether your piece would be suitable drop us an e-mail.

We encourage submissions from new and established creatives. We especially encourage work from under-represented and emerging writers. If you have any queries, just drop us an email!

Expect a reply within 1 month of the submission closing date - if for some reason you do not hear from us after this, feel free to contact us. Please only send work during the submission window as work sent outside this time will not be considered and will be deleted without a reply.

Work remains the property of the creator, however we ask if it gets published elsewhere after being published with us, that you give credit to Re-Side as its first home.

  • We accept translations of your own work - this can be alone or alongside the original piece - but do not accept translations of others' work. 

  • If you have a simultaneous submission please inform us if your work is accepted elsewhere, so we can withdraw it from consideration.
