Submitting Art for Straylight Online
_____________________________________

Straylight Online does not mirror the content of the print edition. This publication is dedicated to exploring narrative of all fashion. We welcome submissions that cross genre boundaries as well as those that explore the way that visual art, music, and literature combine to produce new manifestations of story and verse.

We welcome the following submissions:

Process Pieces. We’re interested in the process of visual and literary art, and the way it evolves. If you are interested in displaying the techniques behind your creation, please query the art staff at submissions@straylightmag.com with the subject “Straylight Online Process Piece Submission” about documenting your production at various stages.

Featured Artists. Straylight Online will occasionally consider dedicating entire pages to single artists or pieces of artwork, often accompanying an interview. If you are interested in being featured on our site, please submit an example of your work to submissions@straylightmag.com with the subject “Straylight Online Featured Artist Submission.” Please include your name, the title of your work, the medium used, and a brief paragraph explaining why we should select you or your work to be one of our features.

Response time is about eight weeks.
