Submission Guidelines


- Visual pieces should be submitted as high-res JPEG or PDF

- If you have specific ideas about format or layout, please specify in your email

- Please note that AYFP is risograph printed and therefore any images will be grayscale in the final publication.

Written Work

- Written work should be submitted as a .docx

- Include a suggested title and short summary of your idea

- Indicate what stage your piece is at - whether you are pitching an idea, a work-in-progress or a finished piece

The Process

 - Once you have submitted I will be in touch to let you know whether your work will be included in Issue #2

- If you submitted a pitch, we will discuss a deadline for you to submit your final piece

- Written work will be subject to editing. Please do be prepared for your work to be proofread and to make some small changes. We will work on any edits collaboratively and this can be discussed in more detail according to the project.


AYFP is a DIY magazine funded out of my own pocket. Issue #1 made enough money to go back into printing, plus a little extra. 

All contributors will receive a copy of Issue #2. 


Unfortunately I still cannot afford to pay every contributor for their work (Issue #1 had over 30 contributors), however I would like to begin by offering a payment of £50 for long-form writing and feature pieces. I recognise that choosing criteria for this can feel arbitrary, but as a working definition this will include work that exceeds 1200 words. I am also happy to discuss on a case-by-case basis, for example if your work is image based and spans multiple spreads.

I aim to be financially transparent with this project, and want to strike a balance between being able to afford to keep the project going and paying people for their valuable work. This strategy is a work-in-progress and subject to change. I am always eager to receive feedback and suggestions.
