Vitality, greenery, everything in bloom. We're opening our eyes to possibilities this season, looking at the world afresh and seeking out new experiences.

Issue 36 - out in April - will be themed 'Awake' and we're looking for your contributions. For this issue, we're especially interested in your first person stories of awakenings. 

To be considered, email a 100-word outline of your idea to, along with two samples of your work by Monday 30 January. Please state 'Issue 36 contributions' in the subject header. 

Unfortunately we don't accept fiction or poetry samples. 

We look forward to hearing your ideas! 

The Letters Issue: A Call-Out for Shiny New Writers!

Issue 32 is all about letters, and we're on the hunt for shiny new contributors to tell their stories on our pages. 

Whether it's the love letter you store in a shoebox under the bed, a secret written in invisible ink, or a text read over a stranger's shoulder, we're publishing compelling first-persons about messages read in private. There are many angles to be explored, and we want your ideas.

To be considered, send a 100-word pitch and two writing samples to* by Monday 6th June, stating 'Issue 32 Words Call-Out' in the subject header. Good luck, dear reader! 

*Please note we don't accept poetry samples. The lovely reader letter featured in our thumbnail was sent to our old address. Our new home is: Oh Comely magazine, Iceberg Press, 40 Bowling Green Lane, London, EC1R 0NE.
