Interested in Submitting? 

As Transmuted is a journal for transgender, gender non-normative, non-conforming, non-binary, non-gender, and other non-cis people: we ask for submissions only by people who identify with the subject matter of the journal (gender non-normativity).

 

  • Transmuted is transgender journal.
    We ask for submissions related to gender
    : whether it’s directly or indirectly related to issues with the cisgender norm, we don’t mind.

 

  • We accept all kinds of work! 
    Digital art, photography, poetry, short stories, opinion pieces, essays, articles, reviews – anything else, submit it and we’ll see if we can make it work!

 

  • Worried about your spelling, grammar, style, or something else? 
    We’re always available to talk about your worries, so don't be afraid to get in touch! This is a place for emotion, connection, and ideas – whatever you create has a space, and we’re here to help to share your work.

 

  • Any submission may be completely anonymous or attributed to a pseudonym according to your preference. Send us an email from an anonymous account, or you can request a name for your work to be attributed to.

  • You have full ownership of your work.
    ​​We wholeheartedly encourage you to publish your work elsewhere - just as much as we love to publish your already-published work!

Submission guidelines

General Guidelines
  • If you are submitting finished work:

    • If you have a biography, are working on other projects, headshots, graphics, images, etcetera - we'd love to share whatever you want to share about yourself on our site and social media! Be sure to include these details in an email, message, form, or suited document.

    • If you have a title, (and/or the above) please also include this in the submission if possible - in an email, message, form space, or document attached.

    • Please do not send written work as images unless to do otherwise is inaccessible.

  • If you are submitting a work-in-progress:

    • Send us a description or abstract of your work, all the deets that you want to share at this point in time. 

    • Let us know what your personal time frame is, if possible. We don't expect work to have a reference, but also don't want to annoy you with any emails about deadlines if you're not working on the piece for a specific issue! This helps us understand how best to work with you. 

      • For example, if you have no idea when you'll be able to finish your work (but wanted to share your idea anyway), don't hesitate to let us know - and if we can help at all, too! ​

      • Or if you have a general idea of when you'll finish your work - which we won't hold you to (after all we hope to publish another issue!) but we know some people like deadlines, whaaaat - let us know what week/month/year/decade you have in mind!

Written Work

  • Maximum word count: 6,000 words. Give or take 500. 

  • Minimum word count: 2 words. Or even 2.5 words, if you’re feeling jazzy.
    However, we won’t accept any written work that does not relate to gender, or anything resembling the simplicity of a bigot’s social media comments.  Acceptable examples include: ‘transgender = normal’, ‘transphobes are kinda stinky tho’, ‘down with normativity’, and so on.'
    ​​

  • Poetry: 1 poem or 1 A5 page with 8pt font and wide margins. More than 1 poem can be shared on the site's archive, as part of your page's portfolio.

  • Please submit your work via a word document (.docx), google document, or other editing-accessible file type – avoiding .pdf format where possible unless as a reference. This is to ease the workload put on our editor!

    • You may have to email this file to us, as the website form has presented some issues.

    • Email: contactus(at)transmuted(dot)co(dot)uk​

  • Remember to specify any requirements as to the formatting of your piece to us when sharing your work: purposeful spelling 'mistakes', required spacing between lines, required alignment (to the left, middle, right of the page), formatting that you missed in your shared piece, and so on. We will always use italics, punctuation, and spacing where evident in shared documents.

Artwork (Images and Text) 

  • Issues are A5 and normally printed in black & white - please bear this in mind when submitting your work!

  • We prefer .png, .pdf, .jpeg formats - shared via google drive, weTransfer, email, our google form for submissions, or similar platforms. 

  • Cap on images - we are able to share as many images on our site as you wish, but in issues we will have to work with space constraints. Feel free to share your work with us in whatever abundance you're comfortable, and we can let you know what space is available in the upcoming issue to dedicate to your project(s)!

  • If you want to share text with your artwork: 

    • For biographies: we recommend sending either a short (50 words or so) biography to go alongside your piece, and any longer biography will be shared on our site due to issues of space. 

    • For written work: we love to share 'multi-media' work! Please refer to other guidelines for general & written formatting.
