Please ensure your email outlines what you hope to achieve in your piece and either has the article or snippet attached ( word doc or PDF ) most of Small Collective au written work is commissioned, as we are very specific about maintaining a cohesive voice and set of values in the magazine. We do have most of the writers we need at this stage, but if you have an idea for a specific article, whether complete or a pitch, then please email us with a few details and samples of your work. Please keep emails brief and clear and attachments as simple as possible (a simple .doc format or PDF is preferred). Our Magazines has lead times of 6-9 months due to printing and organisation and we cannot take responsibility for any unsolicited emails or ideas, as it may have been something we have already thought of ourselves or pitched by another individual).
