While Oscen is accessible to everyone, our focus is on the perspectives that often get ignored. We want intersectionality. We want views on everything — no tokenism!
We publish anything, from articles to photography to playlists. We’re looking for multidisciplinary explorations in both subject and in style, so feel free to range far and wide outside the prompts below.
Prompts will be released as we start our next issue.
If it’s written: around 1000 words, and no more than 1500 (please send as a Microsoft Word-compatible document)
If it’s visual: no more than 6-8 photos for a collection or a photo essay (please send as high-res as you can in .jpg or .png) – include a title and brief description
If it’s a playlist: send it as a written list and we will try and make it Spotify-compliant! (please include a title, brief description, and cover art in .png)
Send up to 3 submissions. Works do not have to be previously unpublished, but please let us know where it has been published before for purposes of acknowledgement. Unfortunately, we cannot offer payment to contributors, but are looking to change this as our platform grows bigger and better.
No discrimination. Anything racist, sexist, homophobic, ableist, etc. will not be accepted.
