We offer the opportunity to practice your writing and photographic skills, publicity and exposure, and the satisfaction of knowing that your contribution has added to the growing debate on the interplay of life, love and death in our society. We do not pay for contributions. Please indicate if you would like us to add a link to your website, or include specific details you would like to accompany the piece/s you send in. We will do our best to oblige.
We accept fiction, non-fiction, photographic images and art work which deals with the culture of death on our planet. If the piece has been previously published we require details to avoid copyright issues. We prefer original, intelligent work that is not unnecessarily gross. Humour is always good. We reserve the right to refuse work that is considered offensive or defamatory.
We reserve the right to edit material for obvious punctuation and spelling errors but for more extensive editing will communicate with the writer or photographer before changes are made. Whenever possible we will publish as-is.
