PITCHES AND GUIDELINES

Mouthy Magazine prides itself on being a platform for experienced and beginner writers to explore the topics they truly care about. 

 

We want to cover topics that are shied away from and do not gain enough coverage in the public sphere, specifically when it comes to gender politics, cultural taboos, societal attitudes and the like.  


 

Planning 

 

When submitting any piece, please ensure first and foremost that your ideas are well thought out and planned. When trying to convey an impactful message or story, your delivery matters. Make sure you consider the structure of your piece and how you intend to entice the reader to read more about your topic.


 

Referencing 

 

When referencing other material, please include citations or links in your draft so that we can include them in the published version. This also goes for any images or videos that you would like to include. 

 

Proofreading

 

Please make sure you proofread your work before submitting it to us, particularly checking for spelling mistakes, punctuation and sentence structure.

 

While we appreciate the time that goes into writing, it can be frustrating to read copy with repetitive errors and it can take away from the message. We are of course here to suggest edits and proofread for mistakes, but if we receive an article with excessive errors we will likely ask you to rewrite it with corrections. 


 

Format and style

 

We enjoy publishing a range of writing styles at Mouthy Mag, including personal or observational essays, reviews, perspective articles, interviews, discussions etc. When deciding what type of piece you'd like to write, please indicate this in your pitch and give an estimated word count. 

 

We are so grateful that people often choose to share their personal experiences with us in their writing. However, we are aware that some topics may be difficult to write about and explore. Due to this, we encourage writers not to feel pressured to open up about topics that might have a negative impact on their mental health or be triggering to them in any way. In instances where speaking about these topics might well be a helpful and healthy outlet for many, we are also happy to publish pieces anonymously.
