Hello there. You are unique in that you are thinking about submitting artwork to a magazine that is, primarily, literature based. But that doesn't mean that your work is any less important. We want to see something sweet, striking. Like the title of our beloved magazine; we especially want to see the interplay between bitterness and sweetness; light and darkness, salvation and damnation. If your work paints a dark cavern, show us the matchstick. If it speaks to the large macrocosm of life, let us see it through a pinhole lens. We want pieces that teeter; balancing on the paradoxical and undefined. We want work that we can’t pigeonhole; defying labels and societal expectations. Give us the tart wine, the honeyed poison. Our favorite part of consuming chocolate is the sweet aftertaste that follows the bitter bite.

-Submissions should be in .doc, .pdf, mp3, or .jpeg format depending on the medium. If you have any special considerations, inquire concerning them by contacting us at: editors@bitterzoetmag.com
