About Submitting to Hungry

  • The deadline for submissions for Issue 001 is March 15th, 2021.
  • We want to respect you and your work by providing a reasonable response time. You can expect to hear back from us about your piece(s) by mid-April 2021.
  • All contributors are paid $50 upon publication.
  • We prioritize the work of creators whose voices are missing in food media. We make this happen with an intentional selection process and a committed editorial team. If you would like to learn more about our values and how your submission might align, please read more at http://www.hungryzine.com/about/.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions are to be sent through our google form here.

Poetry: Please submit a maximum of three poems as a PDF, DOC or DOCX.

Fiction and Nonfiction: Please submit up to two pieces, with a maximum of 1000 words each, as a PDF, DOC or DOCX. Writing can include but not limited to short stories, essays, interviews, and recipes.

Visual art and Photography: Please send up to three low-resolution images. We accept submissions in colour. Please be aware that Hungry will be printed on a risograph press and colour options will be limited (two to three colours).


Do we accept simultaneous submissions?
We are happy to accept simultaneous submissions. Please update us if your piece is selected for publication elsewhere.

Is there a fee to submit?
To keep Hungry accessible, we do not charge a submission fee.

Do we accept multiple submissions?
Yes! You are also welcome to submit to more than one issue of Hungry! If we are unable to include your piece in the issue you have submitted to, we will also consider your submission for future issues.

Do we accept previously published work?
No, at this time we do not accept previously published work. Our priority is to feature previously unpublished pieces and voices.

Are we only doing print versions of the zine or will it be electronic as well?
The first issue of Hungry will be in print (for sale). A digital edition (PDF) will be available for download (for free) on our website. We are exploring ways to make content available online as we go forward with our first year of existence. In agreeing to have the piece in the print zine, you also agree to have it published in our digital edition (PDF) and potentially on our website at a later date. Note: There is no extra payment for publication in web and/or digital editions.
