There are presently no open calls for submissions.
Kinfolk Magazine is created by a small team located in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Portland, Oregon. Each issue has content contributed by up to 60 people from all over the world. We willingly accept unsolicited submissions based on the next issue's theme and have outlined steps for those interested below.
ISSUE 20 IN PRODUCTION
Submissions are now closed for Issue 20. If you would like to receive a theme guide for Issue 21, please email email@example.com between March 21st and April 4th to be sent a download link.
As a general policy, we cannot guarantee placement based on your abstract, and we approve submissions contingent upon space allowance. We currently have minimal editorial space for unsolicited pieces, but please know that we look at all submitted works daily—and we love getting new contributors involved. Please only use this portal for non-themed photography and art submissions outside the designated pitching periods. We prefer for all writing submissions to be on-theme and only pitched during the designated periods.
Please keep in mind that content decisions are made roughly 3–5 months ahead of the publication dates, so please time your pitches accordingly. We also only include original content that hasn't been published elsewhere, including websites and blogs.
Unfortunately due to the small size of our editorial team and the amount of pitches we receive each week, we can't respond individually to all pitches. We will be in touch within a month if your pitch has piqued our interest.
Best of luck! We look forward to hearing your fresh ideas, and thank you for being a reader.
