Paper Nations is looking for prose pieces of up to 750 words. You may submit up to three pieces, as long as your combined word count does not exceed 750. Poetry should be up to 30 lines.

The submission should be of a standard you are happy to see published, although it will be assessed on content and story rather than solely on technical proficiency. Writing may be subject to some minor edits and proofreading, but these will be agreed with you before publication.

Paper Nations are happy to accept previously published pieces, provided you retain the copyright. However, please don’t submit a piece of work to them which is currently still under consideration elsewhere.

You may also submit your writing in the form of a video. In this case, they will need the file in a form compatible with uploading to YouTube and will need the full transcript to ensure accessibility.

Pieces should be accompanied by a short bio of 20-50 words in the third person and can also be accompanied by a photograph of yourself if you wish. Please include any weblinks or social media accounts in the word limit. If your piece is by multiple authors, please include a bio for each author.

The deadline is rolling as submissions are regularly published throughout June – September 2020. 

Further essential information, including full submission guidelines is available via the Paper Nations website.
