We accept submissions via email only. We do not accept postal submissions.
Rollick is committed to championing new literary voices and is open to unsolicited submissions of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
We are specifically interested in publishing contemporary literature, thought, and opinion about popular culture, society, and everything on the periphery. We are passionate about representing all types of voices.
We welcome submissions by writers of colour; writers who are working class or on low incomes; writers who are queer, transgender, non-binary and gender-nonconforming; writers with disabilities; as well as any writer who feels that they or their story are underrepresented.
Thinking about submitting to Rollick?
If you are thinking about submitting to Rollick, please make sure your submission includes all the items on the following checklist.
Text submissions should be presented in 12-point type, with at least one-inch margins, and sequentially numbered pages. It is also helpful to place the title of the piece, and the author’s name into the header of your document so that our panel can keep track of work that is being considered. Please do not send written submissions as email text instead of as an attached document. Such submissions are not deemed to be of publishable quality, and cannot be properly considered.
- Author Details
Please ensure you include the following details when submitting work to us: Contributor’s name, address, telephone number, and email address typed at the top of the first page. In the case of visual art submissions, these details should be included in the body of the email.
- Writer's Statement
Please include a writer/artist’s statement explaining your work and its relevance to the Rollick theme can also assist you during the section process, particularly where your practice employs a novel or experimental approach.
- Biographical Information
Please include a brief biographical note about yourself of no more than 50 words. Not only is it helpful to have this information ready should your submission be successful, it also means that we don’t have to spend time chasing down these details later. The brief biography will accompany any work that is published by Rollick Magazine. Please advise us if you intend to publish your work under a pseudonym.
Not having a photo can cause delays, but more than that, we don’t want to miss out on publishing brilliant work. So, please remember our golden rule: Submission + bio + photo/avatar. Please send images that are 300 x 300 px.
Other things to think about
Rollick Magazine is passionate about writing and the arts. We seek to publish the best talent, promote great dialogue, and inspire real engagement. We aim for quality over quantity, and ask that you submit work that is of publishable quality. This means that work should contain correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Not only does this make a great impression on our selection panel, it also means its easier to tell when you are being experimental or taking risks in your work.
