Call for submissions

Low Light Magazine wants your authentic voices. Real people. Real writing. No bullshit. Your unique visions, revelations; your gobshite symphonies.

Dig deep. Go find. Go talk. Your words should carry reality inside them; time, place, substance. Lost dog journalism. Vagabond stories. Concrete pictures.

Content in harmony with form. Say it as you see it, don’t be scared. All realities heard & considered.

Low Light will be a guiding force in literature. Every town and city has its ‘scenes’, its own ‘happening’ and we’re here to join the dots, cut out the bullshit & the cliques, and bring it all together.

POEMS - 3 or less.

Experimental in form is not discouraged but poems need to be grounded in some form of reality. They need to speak truths, ideas, perceptions in both content and form.

PROSE - flash fiction, short stories.

No set word limit. Short or long, content is key.

JOURNALISM - interest pieces, interviews, real people.

Photography/illustration accompaniments are preferable. Again, we want to see the areas of life that are often left to obscurity. Gonzo meets Mayhew. Feel free to pitch ideas.

PHOTOGRAPHY - social documentary

We encourage short collections of images (up to 5) of the world we live in; the people, the places and the poetic qualities of everyday existence.


In an ideal world we would pay all contributors. However, at the moment we cannot. We receive no state funding, grants etc. (and will never ask for it). Instead, we offer:

£30 - for best photography / journalism contribution.

£30 - for best prose / poetry contribution.

Free contributor copies.

No submission fee.

All submissions emailed to: Contact(at)hi-vispress(dot)com

Please include the submission type in the subject and a short third-person bio (please do not state where previously published, it’s boring. We want to know about YOU)

Submissions close: 1st June 2017.

Advertisers considered. BUT must have similar ethos and be of interest to the readership.
