Submission Guidelines

The TYFPC is officially seeking submissions for our second issue of Mélange Creative Arts Journal!

Food is intertwined with culture and identity. It can comfort and disrupt, heal and harm, bind and divide. It is both political and personal. It has rich histories and potential for innovative or doomed futures. It is something we grow, harvest, consume, digest, exploit, waste, and salvage. Above all, food is a storyteller.

How do you experience food?

If you are a creative youth (30 and under), we would love to hear from you. Mélange Creative Arts Journal is especially interested in work by youth underrepresented in mainstream publications, and submissions that challenge boring, dominant narratives. We want to feature strong, radical opinions and personal stories that come from the heart.

We accept photography, illustrations, graphics, comics, gifs, poetry, short stories, recipes, opinion pieces, and any publishable artform we may not even know about yet! Submissions can be serious, funny, confessional, fictitious, or anything in between.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Visual Media submissions are to be no larger than 8.5”/11” and with the resolution of 300dpi

  • Written submissions are to be no longer than 1000 words

  • Please submit your art and writing using The Submissions Form.

Deadline: December 1, 2017 11:59pm.
