Write For Us

Twice a year we publish a new book of uncivilised writing and art: a classic Dark Mountain anthology in the spring and a special issue in the autumn. We encourage submissions from new and established writers and artists, and we particularly encourage unpublished or ‘unknown’ contributors.

Please note that we are only able to consider material that is sent during periods when we have an open call for submissions.

We have now closed to submissions and proposals for Issue 12, this autumn’s special issue on the theme of ‘the sacred’. The next submissions window will begin at the end of the summer, when we announce the call for Issue 13.

For announcements about calls for submissions and information about deadlines, please follow our blog – or sign up to get Dark Mountain news alerts in your inbox.

Please see our submissions guidelines before you send us work, as well as reading the call for the specific book for which you are submitting.

Throughout the year, we also publish regular  writing and art on the Dark Mountain blog. If you have an idea for a post that might find a home here, we’d be pleased to hear from you – you can contact our blog editor, Nick Hunt.
