We send writers art, who write what the colour inspires.

The new fiction and art collaborations aim to confront forms of oppression by naming them and showing their effects, or by providing positive alternatives to stereotypes depicted in mainstream narratives. We share these collaborations to alter the way we are socialized, and celebrate the beauty of the world that is often missing.

We are now accepting submissions for the Winter Edition of Word and Colour.

We welcome fiction and non-fiction pieces from 500 - 3000 words, up to 5 poems, and artwork. Underrepresented writers (including IBPOC, LGBTQQIP2SAA, disabled, women and non binary writers) are especially encouraged to submit. We will be selecting 10 submissions, and all contributors will be paid upon publication.

We are asking for a nominal $5 fee to submit, which will go entirely to compensating future writers and contributors. However, we want to ensure that Word and Colour remains inclusive. If you're unable to contribute, consider entering our contest: email managingeditor@wordandcolour.com with your submission — the best entry will be published in the fall quarterly. 

Deadline for submissions is October 18, 2018.
