FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q1: Can anyone submit? Do I have to live in the USA? Do I have to be a certain age?
A1: We accept work from anyone and everyone, anywhere in the world, of any age.
Q2: When is your current deadline?
A2: Our submissions are temporarily closed. Please check back for updates.
Q3: When will I find out if my piece has been accepted or not?
A3: We will be in touch with every submitter via email as soon as the final decisions are made. Generally, submitters can expect an acceptance or rejection email one to two months after the deadline closes. The reason for this lead time is an influx in submissions—over 500 per issue and only three (unpaid) editors. We want to give time, respect, and attention to every piece sent in.
**(This is an estimate. For the second issue, it took over three months due to the amount of submissions and problems with funding. Print is expensive, unfortunately!).
Q4: Do you accept work that's previously been published?
A4: Yes! As long as you have the rights to it, send it in.
Q5: Do you offer a stipend for published artists?
A5: Unfortunately, we do not offer compensation as of right now, as printing costs are extremely expensive and we are against charging a submission fee (as it compromises the accessibility for artists). However, it is on our timeline to eventually offer a stipend to artists as Crooked Teeth grows as a magazine and a publishing house. Right now, all of our donations and profits are used to cover our costs. (The editors currently do not make any salary or wage from the magazine). Again, we have plans to change this as we grow because we firmly believe that artists should be compensated!
