OCHO exists at the cross-roads of queer arts. We want its pages filled with poetry, flash fiction and essay, photography, collage, painting, poem-comics, video, interviews, and especially hybrid work that mixes genre and form, that defies categorization. Work that understands the inherent performativity of the queer positions it stakes out. Work that does not shy away from intersections, be they of race, class, nation or gender.
Send up to 8 pages of written/visual work attached as a pdf or word document to ochosubmissions [@] gmail.com. Video works may be sent in the form of a URL via Dropbox.com. Ask how you should submit anything other than written, visual or video.
Art submissions should be sent to Didi Menendez via Dropbox.com. Share with email address didimenendez (@) gmail.com. Or send a URL to your portfolio. Art submissions will be considered for publication in the interior page layout. Cover Art submissions are considered from the artist work we receive but also from invitation. If you are interested in being represented on a cover, please state so in your submission.
Please note: Art submissions are not sent a rejection. Ever. We will only respond to your submission if we have accepted your work for publication. All other submissions will be responded to in a timely manner.
We do not accept simultaneous submissions. If your submission is being considered elsewhere wait until you hear from that editor before submitting your work to OCHO.
Place on the subject line OCHO SUB so that your submission does not end up in our spam folder.
We publish online and in print. Please note that we do not offer contributor hard copies. We will send a PDF of your layout for proofing purposes. All copyrights remain with contributors upon publication.
