Content Submission Guide

We understand what it’s like to want to submit to a really cool publication but feeling stuck or unsure of what to share. So many questions and thoughts run through our minds like,

Will my content fit the subject/theme?

Is my stuff good enough to share?

Don’t sweat it. Our call for content is for all our badass Necias. It is to inspire new projects, to rekindle old ones, to get our creative juices flowing, to challenge us, to make us feel happy, to express ourselves and to connect with others.

We accept various types of media.

  • Video
  • Visual art
  • Photography
  • Words
  • Sounds
  • Songs
  • Dance
  • Multimedia

And beyond are welcome. Below are a few examples of previous submissions. (Make sure to click on the images to see their full submissions.)

Most non-word submissions will include some type of words to describe the content but beyond that is not necessary; However it is always encouraged and accepted if it is part of the piece or the main substance of the piece.

Feel free to look through our content archive for other examples.

To Submit

To Submit your piece e-mail us your media or document at neciamediacollective@gmail.com as an attachment or link us to your Youtube, Soundcloud, etc. Let us know if there is any specific layout you prefer.

Once you submit, you will be assigned an editor who will work with you to get your piece on our website. Our editors focus primarily on clarity - we want to make sure your ideas are coming across clearly. We don’t edit for content other than to make sure topics are relevant to womxn of color artists and media makers and are not problematic or offensive.

Hit 'em up, tell them what about them makes you feel like they might be able to help you and go from there. This is a space to connect and express.
