Submission Guidelines

Ready to change the world for the better with your genius content? Bring it on! These guidelines will give you an idea of what we’re looking for and how we can work together.

First, the “What’s in it for me?” question. Cash for your creative stuff? Sorry, not yet. This is still a volunteer enterprise, and no one’s getting paid, but you do get these:
FREE copy of the current digital issue
FREE clip for your portfolio
FREE ad space for business owners/entrepreneurs
FREE entrance to ROAR Events in 2019
Reaction when you tell people which mag you work for: Priceless.

WRITING: Nonfiction
We want content with an inspiring, energized, even radically enthusiastic message: empowerment, liberation, social activism, personal transformation. Anything about how a really fucked up world can change for the better. Psychology Today and O Magazine meet National Lampoon. Push yourself (and readers) beyond the acceptable edge of propriety. Take a risk you’ve never dared to take. Rattle yourself until you’re shouting “Hell yeah! I can do this!!”  Go rock out to the music that blows your hair back and then create your magnum opus.
Suggested Length: 300-400 words (longer pieces may be considered if there’s space in the issue)
Ownership: No copyright infringement. The writing must be original.

WRITING: Fiction
Same passion and focus as for nonfiction. Short story, poem, haiku, whatever. If it rocks us, we’ll consider it.
Suggested Length: 300-400 words (longer pieces may be considered if there’s space in the issue)
Ownership: No copyright infringement. The writing must be original.

ARTWORK
Any kind of drawing, collage, cartoon, photography, or graffiti—bring it on. Shock us with your originality and chutzpah.
Ownership: No copyright infringement. The artwork must be original.

Author Rights
You own all rights to any work published in ROARGASM.

Payment
Right now, no pay. This is a labor of love. When we’re making the big bucks with our radical homegrown zine, we’ll spread the love.

You can help grow the readership by spreading the word! Talk it up with friends. Email it to your networks and communities. Hell, send it to anyone you can think of, especially folks who are offended by radical honesty. We don’t care. Get ROARGASM into the hands and in front of the eyeballs of people who, like you, are fed up with fakery, poised to bungee jump out of their comfort zone, and hungry for authenticity.
