Submissions

Issue 9 CUT / COPY / PASTE : The Remix submissions are open January 1-April 1, 2022!

True to our mission, Issues 8 and 9 of CUT / COPY / PASTE work in tandem with one another as a creative, collaborative experiment! The Original sought work from contributors who would volunteer their work by used for The Remix, where it might be repurposed in any way the brilliant minds submitting to Tiny Spoon might imagine.

CUT / COPY / PASTE: The Remix will integrate elements of The Original. We invite contributors to use elements of CUT / COPY / PASTE: The Original in their submission, doing just as the name suggests to see what happens from repurposing, reorienting, fragmenting, and collaging. Some elements may be original, but all must incorporate text or image from Issue 8 The Original.

Submissions to Issue 9 CUT / COPY / PASTE : The Remix must note what pieces from Issue 8 The Original you have incorporated in the form of “Title,” Name in your submission. This can be noted at the bottom of a page or separate page; we just need it to be clearly visible. If credit is not given, we will not be able to include your submission for consideration for Issue 9. It is important to us that while we invite you to collaborate on this experiment with us, we give credit to our original artists and writers and constellate the creative constellations between Issues 8 and 9. We also LOVE a process note, so if you’d like to let us know in more detail how you did what you did, please feel welcome!

Ideas for inspiration

collage, décollage, pulling and incorporating a quote or phrase, erasure, combining pieces, rearranging pieces, writing on images, writing in the margins

CUT / COPY / PASTE

We want everyone who is interested to be able to submit to The Remix! As such, we are including a PDF of Issue 8 The Original here for your convenience to print and cut up as many times as needed!

As our subscriptions fund our magazine and help us to publish and expand, if you are financially able, we recommend a donation to our tip jar of $2-5 for the copy of the magazine.


(Please limit to 3 pieces per submission, up to 4 pages per prose piece.)


Tiny Spoon’s submissions are open January 1-April 1-2022 for CUT / COPY / PASTE : The Remix. Please send all submissions directly to our email: tinyspoonlitmag@gmail.com. 

Our guidelines are below. Please take a moment to review them before submitting. We look forward to reading your work!

What We Look For:

Here at Tiny Spoon, we are especially interested in experimental work, although not exclusively. If you’ve had trouble finding a home for your work because it doesn’t fit into generally recognized categories, chances are your home is right here with us.

We seek work that pushes the boundaries of conventional genres; work that is daring, experimental, innovative, quirky, thoughtful, vulnerable, electric, eccentric. In other words, your inner workings expanded and exposed, raw and immediate; your fragile soul parted at the seams into our bound paper glossary of tiny wonder. Your voice is beautiful, edgy, infinite, and unique, and we want to raise it.

Guidelines:

  • Format text: sent as .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf
  • Art: .jpeg or .tif
  • Please label the file “Last Name_Title of Work”
  • Length per piece: 1,000 words max
  • Font: 12 pt Garamond or a similar font
  • Up to three pieces per submission. Any additional work after the first three will not be reviewed. Please refrain from inserting text submissions directly into the body of the email.
  • You may submit up to two emails of submissions per issue.
  • Simultaneous submissions allowed. Please let us know if it is published elsewhere.
  • Submissions are free!
  • Please provide a one sentence bio about yourself.
  • Cover letters are not required, but you may send one if you’d like. We won’t show preference based on this.
  • You will maintain the rights to your work; if it is published elsewhere or in a collection, we simply ask that you give us credit for first publication.
  • Submitted work will be considered for our print and/or online blog, which allows us to accept more submissions since print space is limited.

Contributor Compensation

For our contributors in North America, we send a complimentary copy of the issue in which they appear.

If outside North America, due to budgeting costs and the fact they often get lost in the mail, instead of a physical copy, we provide a printable version of the magazine and instructions for assembly.


Upon submitting to Tiny Spoon, we will add you to our monthly newsletter to be sure you are updated on all the latest information regarding submission calls and reading processes so you are always aware of the status of your work. Generally, it takes us 3-6 months to read through our submissions. Please use the newsletter and social media to gauge where we might be in the process in lieu of individual emails–we will always let you know as soon as we have made our final decisions!
