CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

 

We are always excited to invite new artists, writers, poets, photographers, and other creatives into the fold of the Royal family. Whether that be regular contributions as a copywriter, one-off pitches, photo essays, etc., we welcome your creativity. Our content engine manifests itself in two ways, as our online journal Unbound and as our print publication ROYAL Magazine. Whether you are interested in contributing to one or the other, or both, there's a place for you here.

So who are we looking for? Dynamic Black writers and artists who are passionate about cultivating community, storytelling, and the celebration of Blackness in America. We seek to amplify the voices of the margins of our community and showcase the richness and complexity of Blackness. Our writers are wordsmiths who tell stories that are traditionally untold from a multitude of angles. Our photographers and featured artists are magicians who capture the beauty of Blackness in everyday communities and can illustrate what we sometimes cannot articulate. Although our content engine is highly curated, we are committed to the autonomy of our contributors and look for contributions that are representative of varying Black perspectives.

Royal encourages contributions from an intersectional lens and is inclusive of and seeking all genders, religions, sexualities, abilities, and ethnic identities from varying geographic, educational, and economic backgrounds.

**Royal does not accept previously published work.**
