Establishing connections — A call for submissions


Let’s practise a bit of cultural decentering.

I’m very keen on reading outstanding critical submissions that deal with Global South cultures. 3:AM Magazine is an excellent space and I want to use it to create connections that might help erode notions of centres and peripheries. Fuck centres and peripheries, what we need is a bit of cross-contamination, in every direction.

I want pieces like this one, this one, and this one. I’m not interested in travelogues a la Charles Darwin in Patagonia, acritical pieces about your holidays in [insert favourite exotic place here] and how cool the locals were, or jargony academic writing about the use of the comma in 17th century Brazilian poetry.

Some quick guidelines:

* All subs under 3,000 words; in English; one piece per submission.

* Attach your piece as a doc or docx or pages file.

* Add a short bio at the end of the piece, in the style of the mag. Include links, Twitter handle, etc. You know the drill.

* Give me up to six weeks to get back to you. If you haven’t heard back from me by then, please assume I won’t take your work this time. I try to respond to all my emails but this is not always possible.

* Simultaneous subs are fine. But do let me know if your piece is accepted elsewhere, please!

* Submit by email. Look for my contact details here.

No payment. Everything at 3:AM Magazine is done for free:by the authors, by the editors, and for the readers.

Looking forward to reading your work.
