The Climbing Zine is now accepting stories, photography, and art for our 2023 volumes. Below are our loose guidelines.
The Climbing Zine publishes thought provoking essays, stories, and poetry. Word count can be anywhere from 200 to 10,000. Our aim to publish work that focuses on the essence of climbing; we’ll publish accounts of any climbing experience, as long as the writing is intriguing and thought provoking. The objective being written about is not as important as the way it is written. We look for passion, unique style, and a love for climbing in the works that we print.
Photos and art
Each piece also is accompanied by photos and/or art, and this is usually arranged after we select the stories. Photography and art submissions are always welcome.
We also highly recommend reading through a copy of The Zine before submitting to get a feel for our style.
Pay ranges from $100 to $900.
Pitches/drafts can be emailed to: email@example.com
