We welcome unsolicited submissions and consider all submissions carefully.
We also welcome email queries from writers who want an initial yea or nay on essay topics, interviews with accomplished writers and artists, and other nonfiction pieces, including profiles of living visual artists, filmmakers, composers, and living artists in other forms.
We ask those who wish to submit work to read the journal and get an idea for the type and range of material we publish. You can order back issues here.
If you wish to nominate yourself or another visual artist else for consideration of coverage in Image, please send an e-mail to [email protected]. We do not accept mailed submissions from visual artists.
In general, we have a 6,000-word maximum.
We accept simultaneous submissions. Please update us if work is placed elsewhere.
Our current response time runs about five months from receipt.
We do not accept previously published material, including web-published or self-published material.
We do not accept electronic submissions.
Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE). If you want work returned, make sure to include sufficient postage (otherwise we’ll just send the note). Due to limited staff time and the large number of submissions we receive, we cannot respond by email, and submissions without an SASE will not receive a response.
Outside the US, the simplest way to obtain US postage for your SASE is through the USPS Click-N-Ship option here, which allows you to print out US postage. Please do not send International Reply Coupons (IRCs) as we cannot use them through our campus mail system.
Please do not send us the only existing copy of your work.
Upon acceptance, we offer a contract for first serial rights.
