Submission Guidelines

Submission guidelines:


Submissions are now open for issue 7! Sign up to our mailing list for updates!

First things first: This is really important! Make sure you have a wander on over to our Pinterest page and Instagram for inspiration and to get a feel for what our aesthetic is.

Instagram: @tales_mag

Unfortunately, Tales cannot cover any production costs for your submission or offer any payment (this includes free copies of issues), we will always credit your work and every other name you supply us with who was a part of your submission, and of course, the copyright remains entirely with you!

You don’t have to submit work you have created specifically for us, but please do try to only submit work that is not published in any other publication or online – including all social media/blogs. Please also refrain from publishing in any of the previously mentioned platforms after submitting to Tales, until you have heard whether your submission has been successfully accepted to the issue.

If your submission has been successful you will still be held under the guidelines and reminded not to publish your work until the release of the issue unless stated otherwise, so please don’t forget! *

Submitting your work to us does not guarantee its publication, we will review all submissions after the deadline and let you know if you have been successful/unsuccessful afterwards.


Please send your submissions to with SUBMISSION in the subject line, followed by your full name (as you would like it to appear) and a short description of your work and how you feel it fits within the theme.

Please include any team credits in a separate word doc (including but not limited to: models, MUAHs, agencies, stylists etc….)

Creatives – & All Images
Please do not send large image files! Submit low res pdfs, and if you are successful we will request high res (300dpi and 4000 pixels on the longest side) images via Wetransfer.

Writers can submit their work under 3 categories:
Short stories
Miscellaneous (poems, short articles etc)

PLEASE NOTE: We can only accommodate one short story per issue up to 5000 words, all other short stories/written pieces must not exceed 3000 words.

Please adhere to these guidelines! It makes it a lot easier for us during production.

We look forward to hearing from you! x
