CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Onder Magazine Issue 005


Onder Media Group announces an open call for articles, book and game reviews, cartoons, and commentary for issue 005 of Onder Magazine.

The theme for Issue 005 is MUSIC. While the editorial staff would prefer content that aligns with the designated theme (see suggestions below), it is not a requirement (the theme is more of a guideline than a rule, don’tcha know). Article Proposals may be submitted here and are due February 20. Final drafts of all content are due March 1.

Compensation for all contributions is royalty based and detailed here.

Below is a list of possible content for the various segments of the magazine canon… they are provided only to provide a conceptual framework for submission. Writers should feel free to propose their own content ideas.
