Submit

Before submitting your work, please carefully read through the general, categorical, and autobiographical guidelines. Any submitted material that does not follow the guidelines will not be considered for publication. The portal to our submission form is located at the bottom of this page.

General Guidelines

  1. All submissions must be sent through our online submission form below. Only one form per person is allowed per issue.
  2. You may submit a maximum of five pieces (writing, visual art, and/or other) during each submission round. Each piece should be included as a separate attachment.
  3. Each submission attachment should be titled Category_SubmissionName  (Example: Poetry_BestPoemEver; Photography_Rocks).
  4. Ensure your name does not appear on your submission attachments, as they will be judged by a blind jury.
  5. Anthology and Archival Rights are requested. This means you permit Credo Espoir to publish your work in its magazine and archive it on this website.
  6. If you have any questions before submitting, please leave us a comment in the contact section or send us an email at credoespoir@gmail.com.
  7. All submissions will be evaluated based on artistic merit. Please keep in mind that the purpose of the magazine revolves around human experience, hope, understanding, connection, belief, etc. (see our mission). We do not accept hate speech or overtly sexually explicit material.
