Submission Guidelines

Fees and Payment

Love Wild Gardens Zine currently  runs on a volunteer basis and we don’t have the ability to pay the writers and artists that so kindly contribute (at the moment - but have ambitions to change this!).  We will however share your website, social handles, books etc. where applicable. We will also be championing wildlife charities and causes and donating profits from the magazine (when we can!).

General Guidelines

Please make sure your work fits the Zine’s theme.

  1. We prefer previously unpublished work so please let us know where and when it has been published previously.

  2. Your piece first and foremost belongs to you, however we ask that you don’t publish a piece we have accepted before it appears in Love Wild Gardens Magazine. Once it has been published, all rights will revert back to you as the author.

  3. Submissions should be one piece per document.

  4. Please only submit to a maximum of TWO categories (eg. Poetry and Artwork)

  5. Please make sure your work is proofread and complete before submitting.

  6. We can’t accommodate providing feedback right now. If your piece is turned down, please don’t contact our team asking for edits, or feedback beyond what may or may not be provided.

  7. We are happy for you to be published under a pseudonym, however please provide us with your real name upon submission.
