Collaborate With Us
The Zine is an ecosystem that supports and nourishes the arts through giving a voice to creators, and providing a space for creativity to flow in all directions.
We are about the arts and for the arts, in any shape and form, and we want to speak to people through stories that connect with them.
We are interested in inspirational artists’ journeys, relevant art news told with a twist; groundbreaking, unique art events with a background story, and any interesting content related to the arts world that we feel excited to read about.
We value critical, constructive, out of the box thinking, and rejoice in featuring diversity and far reaching stories of cultural and human interest coming from any corner of the world.

Things to Consider
We want to talk about art, however we’re not interested in speaking only to an art crowd. Make sure your pitch gives us a sense of why this story has a wider appeal.
We value stories written with passion and uniqueness; please, allow your personality to shine through in your article.
Content must be original and unpublished. If it’s not, we will find out and won’t publish your piece.
Images are very important to us; please make sure your article is supported by high quality visual material.
We will only consider articles written in English. If English is not your mother tongue, we need you to have a broad command of the language.
