submit to trick!

We are always accepting pitches and submissions, and we would highly encourage QTBIPOC writers to share their words and their thoughts with us.


Trick accepts any of your creative work! This can be poetry, photography, art, personal essays, short films and short fiction, or whatever else you’d like to share.

We also accept work for our politics section, which includes but is not limited to: thinkpieces, news analysis, political essays and critiques. 

The work you submit must be original work created for Trick Magazine, and cannot be previously published anywhere else.

If you’re submitting to us, please submit your written work in a Google Doc, and your visual work in JPEG format.

how to pitch to us!​

Email us at with the subject line “pitch/submission for trick”!

If you’re pitching to us, tell us a bit about the work you’d like to create, and give us a tentative deadline that works for you.

If your piece isn’t visual art, let us know if you have any accompanying visuals in mind (photography, graphics, collages, etc.) or if you’d like us to work on something for you. 

Since we’re independent, we can’t pay you for your contributions, but we love & appreciate your work, and we can’t wait to feature it on our site.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
