CERASUS Magazine will launch in the near future, beginning with Issue Zero. We invite submissions of all types of writing and graphics.
The ethos of CERASUS Magazine is the same as on our masthead and can be summed up in 3 words:
We enjoy writing that demonstrates craft, wit and intelligence and which possesses muscle.
Don’t tell us how wonderful love is, or about the pretty flowers and butterflies. Equally, don’t burden us with your existential angst. Tell us something we don’t already know. Or, at least, tell us in a way we haven’t heard before.
Poetry can be anything between a 1 line epithet and a sequence of epic verse (short of the Iliad) and everything between. Send us one brilliant poem, or a clutch to choose from, or a short themed collection.
Fiction can be micro or flash, a short story, a novella strong enough to be serialised, or a standalone extract from a novel.
Prose can be (auto)biography, a review, or an article, tutorial or ‘think piece’ of interest to writers.
Submit as a Word compatible document with single spaced lines, titles in bold and a clear page break between items. Preferred fonts are Verdana 12pt for titles and Georgia 10pt for body text.
We also welcome full colour, greyscale and black & white graphic art, illustrations, photographs, cartoons and comic strips that will fit within a US Letter sized page (8.5”X11”).
Submit as a print quality jpeg of at least 300dpi.
With your submission, you may include a brief personal profile of around 50 words, confirming the name under which you wish to be published. You may also provide separate social media links and a small photograph of yourself.
By submitting to us, you are declaring that you are the sole author of your work to which you hold full rights. As well as plagiarism, we also do not tolerate gratuitous sex, violence, discriminatory representations of BAME and LBQT+ communities and slanderous allegations.
We aim to reply to all submissions in a timely manner, but do not guarantee publication.
We may accept your submission, subject to certain edit suggestions, which are open to further negotiation and which you can refuse.
If accepted, you grant us permission to feature your material in CERASUS Magazine and to sell it in one featured edition throughout the world. You still retain full rights to your work.
At the moment, we have no budget for cash payments. Each contributor will receive a complimentary hard copy of the Magazine in which they are featured and be able to purchase further copies at an exclusive discount price.
All submissions and enquiries should be sent to:
For Issue Zero only, you may place one FREE advertisement, subject to our approval of the suitability of your copy.
