If you're a South or Southeast Asian creative living in North America, we would love to see your work! Here's how to get your stories and art to our inbox.

And if you’re a past contributor and want to use us for your portfolio, shoot us an email and we can send you a personal .pdf of your work as it appeared in the print zine that you can print! And if you have written a blog post for us, you can 100% use the permalink for it when looking for other work in the publishing world.


 

Stories

Any stories submitted must be sent through our Google Form for Story Submissions.

Writers are encouraged to submit no matter what genre they write, so long as the work has not been previously published elsewhere. If your submission is accepted, you will be paid based on your word count. Rates and rules are as follows:

  • Our rate is one cent per word, essentially $1/100 words

  • Minimum word count for submissions is 500

  • Maximum word count is 10 000

So, for example, if a story has 3000 words, the writer will be paid $30 CAD. This is up to $100 for the maximum word count.

You will hear back from us about your submission up to two weeks after the deadline.


 

Art

Any stories submitted must be sent through our Google Form for Art Submissions.

Artists are encouraged to submit any and all art, so long as the work has not been previously published elsewhere. If your submission is accepted, you will be paid a flat rate of $25 for each piece that gets published in the issue. So if you wish, you can submit multiple pieces in the same email.

You will be paid $50 if your piece is chosen for the cover, and $25 for any other pieces that get published in the issue.

You will hear back from us about your submission up to two weeks after the deadline.


 

Blog Posts

Any posts submitted must be sent to krosmagazine@gmail.com with "Blog Submission" in the title, with the article attached in Word Document file format (.doc, .docx).

In your email, please include the name you'd like to be credited with (whether it's your real name or a pseudonym), your age (you must be over 18!), and your ethnicity.

Writers are encouraged to submit whenever they have a pitch or completed post, so long as the work has not been previously published elsewhere. Rates and rules are as follows:

  • Posts will be considered on a rolling basis, there is no deadline for online content

  • Blog posts can be researched articles or personal stories concerning the south/southeast Asian diaspora

  • If we accept an article, it will go through a fact-checking process with our team here at KROS Magazine

  • Word limit is capped at 700

  • If your piece is accepted, you will be paid a flat rate of $10 per post

You will hear back from us about your submission up to a week after we receive it.
