If you would like to write or otherwise contribute to Elsewhere, whether for the print journal or blog, please first read this page before getting in contact with us:


We are currently inviting submissions for Elsewhere No.05, to be published in June 2017. For the first time, along with our general theme of place, we are having a theme for the issue: TRANSITION. The submission period is open until 31 March 2017 and all submissions should be sent to our editor in chief:

The only guidelines are that completed pieces should be linked to the general theme of place and the issue theme of transition. With regards to length, most pieces we publish will be between 1000 and 5000 words. We also remain interested in photography, illustration and other visual arts projects related to the theme of place. Please note that, unfortunately, we cannot continue to pay contributors to Elsewhere. We have long had this as our aim, but the project as it is right now cannot sustain it.


We also are inviting submissions to the blog. For the blog there is no theme other than place, and we will accept blog submissions at any time. Please note that for the blog, we very rarely accept pieces that are over 1000 words and again we are unable to pay contributors. We also encourage submissions of photography, artwork, illustration or film for the blog. Submissions for the blog can also be sent to
