If it's online it could be in print
illiteratemagazine.com is the community site where users like you help contribute content to illiterate magazine. All submissions uploaded to the site are considered submissions for the purpose of being published. We'll contact you before publishing anything, but keep in mind any information (or lack of information) included in the submissions or on your profile could make it into the magazine.
Pretty simple concept here: if you didn't create the content, don't take credit for it.
At illiterate we're all for creative experimentation, confrontation of social norms, and even a bit of buffoonery, but it's up to you as a part of this creative community to help maintain standards for quality and thoughtfulness. Though the line between artistic statement and pornography continues to waver, in certain circumstances we can't afford to. If your submission suddenly disappears, it wasn't magic, it was a judgment call.
Visual Submission Guidelines
1. File Formats
We accept .jpg, .png and .gif
2. File Size
Images should be no bigger than 2mb. If you don't know what this means right click the image you want to upload on your computer and view its properties. If it's bigger the 2mb, then you'll need to reduce the size of the image.
3. No watermarked images
You do not need to add a copyright statement to your images in order to protect them. Your images are protected under copyright law anyway, and you don't lose that protection by uploading them here.
4. No logos in images
As much as we appreciate slick graphic design. illiterate is not a professional design portfolio site. Unless your submitting to a mission that specifically involves designing a logo for illiterate or an illiterate sponsor please keep commercial work between you and your clients,
Literary Submission Guidelines
1. Length Requirements
Though there's no true length limit, if you're goal is to get your writing published in the printed magazine, think brief. We're not going to publish your novel or novel length poem in its entirety, but we might print an installment!
2. If you can help it, don't copy and paste from Microsoft Word or other word processing software
Word processors have a tendency to add html code to your text, which can have strange results when uploaded into illiterate or any website's text editor. If you do need absolutely need to copy and paste from a word processing program, try pasting it first into a basic text editor like Notepad. This should help clear it of any unnecessary code.
