The deadline for submitting work for Sketch has temporarily closed.

General Submission Information

Sketch accepts submissions by email only. Please email submissions as an attachment. Please do not include any biographical information at this stage. You will be asked to send a short bio only if your submission is accepted for publication.  Please note, Sketch can only consider work that has not been previously published. While Sketch cannot pay for content, contributors retain full copyright of their work, meaning they are welcome to legally reproduce it elsewhere.

Literary Submissions

Fiction, Poetry, Journalism, Interviews

Sketch accepts submissions from both Australia and overseas in the above literary forms. Excerpts of plays and film scripts will also be considered. Unlike most literary journals, Sketch refrains from imposing word limits. We judge works on literary merit, not word count. Up to three pieces may be submitted at once.

Art Submissions

Contemporary Design & Art, Photography, Sculptures, Paintings and Prints

Sketch encourages artists from Australia and overseas to submit work in all art forms. Please email the submission as a jpeg attachment in an email. Ensure the title of the piece, as well as a brief note about the inspiration behind the work is included. Sketch encourages multiple submissions of art; quality artwork that cannot be published in one edition will be published in the next.
