Call for Submissions: CASH

For our spring issue, we’re looking for visual and written essays, interviews, comics, journalism, poetry, short fiction, and humour on the topic of cash as it figures into our lives, culture, and politics.

We’re interested in money: how it circulates, who gets to hold onto it, how you think about it, and how it feels. What does it mean to be owed, and what does it mean to be indebted? What power does cash endow us with, and what do we give up when seeking it out?

Topics to think about:

Reparations, owing and being owed, hoarding, entitlement and guilt, “doing what you love,” working for tips, losing/wanting/needing/not thinking about money, commodification of care and “women’s” work, sex work, house poor, money and relationships, #GiveYourMoneytoWomen, inheritance, credit cards, piggy banks, alternative banking, sharing economies, trading economies, defunding and privatizing public services and programming, “you can’t just throw money at the problem,” international aid, the wage gap, the politics of charitable donations, pin money, hush money, etc! 

Submit a short pitch (max 300 words) describing your proposed project no later than February 17, 2017 to submit@gutsmagazine.ca. Please include a link to or copy of a writing sample that you feel adequately represents your work. Please look over our past issues to get a sense of the kind of work we’re looking for.

Final submissions (500-4,000 words) will be due on March 27, 2017.

Compensation will be provided for contributors selected for the issue.

If you have any questions or comments about the submission process, please email us at submit@gutsmagazine.ca
