Keep Art Alive

Fall 2019 Front Cover-page-0Sunspot Literary Journal publishes five times per year. Four of those editions are free digital version that are available on the website. One is their annual print edition, which is distributed to booksellers around the world.

Sunspot speaks truth to power by using the power of every voice. In their first year, they’ve produced essays by a woman writing about life in the Jim Crow South, an interview with a Ugandan forced to become a child soldier, stories about breaking free from abuse, Daliesque fiction, and art from emerging and established creators.

You can help change the world through words and art. Consider running an ad in the newsletter or magazine, purchasing a copy of the 2019 annual edition (currently available only for preorder), sending a contribution through Paypal, or filling the tip jar on Submittable.

Paying Market for Artists, Photographers

art-1867899_1920Sunspot Literary Journal has begun paying for artwork or photos used on its cover.

The cover is selected from the pool of submissions accepted for publication every quarter.

Once a year, the magazine produces a print version. One of the pieces of art published in that year’s editions is selected as that cover. It might be one already used as a digital cover, or it might be a different one.

So, your accepted artwork has two opportunities to be selected for a cover. And yes, if the same piece is selected twice, two payments will be made.

The payment is currently $20. Sunspot will add payments for all contributors, and increase the amount of those payments, as funding grows.

Check out their website, or head over to Submittable to send in a piece of art or a photograph.
