Want to write for Brainwash Magazine?

Brainwash Magazine Contributor guidelines

Brainwash Magazine is looking for articles that speak to teenage girls aged between 13 and 18. It is a magazine that aims to be inclusive of all body shapes, sexual preferences and skin colours. Body positivity is a must. Please ensure that value is respected in any submitted work.

The Brainwash project acknowledges that there are more important things for girls to think about than just boys, sex, makeup and clothes. While we will still be including content related to these topics, please send a pitch before you start writing. We’re also looking for articles on the following topics: sport, environment, politics, history, science, pop culture, craft, health, the media/magazines, girl power, social analysis, advice etc.

Average word count is 500 words. Please email for specifics. We welcome interviews, reported pieces, critical essays, personal pieces, jokes, comics, drawings, photographs, poems and short stories.

Most of all, we welcome your ideas. We want stories that are fresh and shine with truth. We want writers of all ages, yes, seriously. Your five-year-old daughter can submit a piece about why she likes to be a girl. Your grandmother can submit a piece about what it was like being a teenager way back when… Please pitch your idea for a column/article, especially topics not listed above. This is by no means an exhaustive list and chances are that your idea will be an instant hit.

Please also send along a 50 word bio about yourself written in third person.

The magazine will be printed in hard copy and released in April, 2013. It will be available to purchase online.
