We Need You!
If you're interested in contributing to Sewzine read on - everyone is welcome!
You don't need to have any special skills or experience just something to say and a passion to communicate with the sewing world.
What we want
As long as it is related to making your own clothes we are looking for the following:
Well researched informative and/or entertaining articles
Interviews with interesting folk
How to guides with illustrated step by step instructions and images
Artwork and illustrations
What we don't want
Reviews of individual products and events
Previously published articles (including blog posts)
Reading the zine will give you a good idea of the style and types of article that you could submit. Before you commit to producing any content please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then tell you if we are interested and send you some submission terms and guidelines.
We have two tiers of payment:
You will not be attributed for the content you provide but will be paid at the current rate of 4 pence per word (articles are normally between 1000-2000 words). Additional payment is made for supporting images by arrangement (between £2.00 - £5.00 each).
Your work is provided to us for free in exchange for a quarter page bio which can be used to promote you or your business. Please note, this should not be a generic advert, rather an interesting insight into you as a sewer, or an aspect of your business that readers may find interesting.
Please get in touch - the more contributers we get the more often we can publish an issue!
