Can I contribute to Boneshaker?
Yes! That is what makes boneshaker SO great….so whether you want to write, take photographs, illustrate or have other ideas for getting involved, please get in touch. If you have a specific idea for a piece, email over a quick pitch explaining your idea in a paragraph or two, telling us why it’s new/interesting/important and saying where you’d go, who you’d speak to and what your angle on the story would be. It’s also useful to have an idea of timeframes – when you could deliver the finished piece (if commissioned) and whether the content relates to a date-specific event. Please bear in mind that Boneshaker is being sold all over the world, and as such, all articles need to be applicable regardless of their geography. If you are submitting photography, please remember that all images need to be a minimum of 300dpi resolution and preferably more where possible. We’re delighted with the level of interest we’ve had from potential contributors all over the world – but we’ve a limited number of pages to fill and lots of people who’d like to help fill them – so sadly we can’t use everything we’re sent.
Can you pay me for my contribution?
The magazine is currently a not-for-profit venture and as such we are unable to pay people for their submissions. We hope that this will change in the not too distant future, but for the time being all we offer is the satisfaction of seeing your work in print and knowing that it is being enjoyed all over the world. All contributors naturally receive a free copy of the magazine and are welcome to buy further copies of the magazine from us at cost price should they wish.
Do you accept advertising?
