CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – New online magazine seeks articles for website launch

The book doesn’t truly end once you close it.

Artists are very pensive people. At Postmortem Mag, we believe that if you are an artist, you are never finished. Even if you finish a creation and then move on to the next project, that last one can linger. Just because you close the book on one aspect of your life doesn’t mean it’s actually over. We want to explore that, provide a platform for people to reflect on their past works, figure out how that experience shaped them, what they’ve learned, and what advice they can give to those looking into similar pursuits. Because everyone already knows how you got there, but nobody tells the story of where you’re going.

Those are the kinds of stories that Postmortem Mag wants to tell. I want pieces that are the result of reflection, about where you are going. Think of the term “postmortem,” how it relates to a report after the fact, and what kind of story it could tell.

To get an idea of what I’m looking for, you can read this (very heavy) piece I wrote about creating a Twine game for the Lights Out, Please collaboration: https://medium.com/@revierypone/a-lights-out-please-postmorterm-ed98a483cfa1

Currently I’m looking for unpublished submissions for a website prelaunch, including interviews, personal essays, art, photography, video, and more. As long as it relates to the theme, I will consider it. I am accepting pitches along with full drafts, but just keep in mind that if you submit a full work, it could take longer to receive a response.

At this time, I can’t pay for your work but with the help of a few pieces that I can use to set up the website, I’m hoping to set up a platform for fundraising, paving the way for compensation in the future.

There isn’t a deadline for work, but I’m hoping to have something by the end of the year so for formal purposes the deadline is Monday, December 1.

To submit your pitches, please email postmortemmagazine@gmail.com.

If you have any questions you can also use the email above.

Regards,

Carli Velocci
