WHAT IS MEGAZINE? A CULT?
Megazine's goal is to provide a platform for people to tell their stories, have their stories be told, and share their talents with the world.
In compliance with that goal, Megazine reviews submissions of all kinds: articles, opinion pieces, reviews, art, photography, poetry, literature, essentially anything (legal...) that can be published on the internet during our submission periods. Submission periods are announced through our social media accounts, which you can find links to at the very bottom of our website.
While the zine is based in Jersey City, NJ we accept submissions from all over the globe. We take pride in connecting people, and connecting with people.
HOW CAN I BE A PART OF MEGAZINE?
Becoming a part of Megazine is actually much easier than you'd think. As mentioned above, we're open to all kinds of submissions, from any skill level, from anywhere.
Here's how you can submit to us:
Send us your material at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
If the content is approved and suitable, you will be kept updated on the publication of your material, until it's finally released into the wild/internet. Sounds difficult, right? ;)
IS MEGAZINE HIRING?
We're working on it! We'd love the privilege of paying other passionate people to help us out. The more well-known we get, the more financial opportunities we'll also get (and consequently give). We'll keep that as a goal for now... With that said, however, if you'd like to volunteer to work for Megazine, feel free to contact us via email!
CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS WITH MEGAZINE?
If your business is not doing anything "newsworthy," (ie: has an upcoming event, is just opening, etc.) we unfortunately cannot do a write-up about it (otherwise, we would write about every business) If you are interested in purchasing an ad in Megazine, however, please contact us via email. We'd love to help you out!
And just a few more things worth mentioning:
There is no word count for written submissions. No submission is too long or too short.
No formatting is necessary for submissions; we'll take care of that. Including photos with proper crediting is a huge plus, though!
It's totally up to you what you'd like to submit. All we ask is that your submission wasn't included in any other publications (blogs and social media is fine) and that it belongs to you. If you're uncertain, feel free to shoot us an email to double check.
At this time, we can only provide credit-and-exposure-based compensation (our fancy way of saying we can't pay you) which is great for portfolios or resumes, although we hope to get Rolling-Stone-or-Playboy-level famous so we can start throwing $100 bills at our writers/staff. We're working on it. :)
