Want to submit to Tulpa? This is your easy guide to pitching and submitting your work.


We accept work from writers of all experience levels. We are particularly interested in pieces about the Arts community, life as a writer/artist and fiction that is playful and experimental. We are always open to all kinds of art and writing- so make sure to pitch us your ideas if you’re unsure if your work is a good fit for Tulpa.

All submissions are blind-judged in order to give all contributors an equal chance to be accepted on the merits of their work alone. At the moment we are unable to pay contributors but hope to do so in the near future.

What we accept:

  • Fiction (literary, speculative, mystery, fantasy, Sci-Fi)
  • Creative Non-fiction
  • Reviews
  • Art
  • Photography
  • Comics
  • Opinion Pieces


We do not accept material that is:

  • Homophobic
  • Transphobic
  • Racist
  • Sexist
  • Directly promotes a specific political or religious party or organisation
  • Promotes hate speech



If you have an idea for an article but you’re not sure if it’s a good fit for Tulpa or you’re not quite sure how you want to write it then pitch to us.

All you need to do is write us a short description of what you want to write about and an estimate of how long your piece will be. Include any additional information important to your piece or any issues you would like help with.

Send your pitches to with ‘Pitch’ as the subject line.


Submission guidelines:

For complete pieces we have the following word limits. However, if a piece goes a little over the word count we are still happy to accept it.

Fiction pieces – 1500 words maximum

Feature Articles – 800-1500 words

Reviews – 500 words


Once you’re ready to submit make sure that your email does the following:

  2. Include the type of submission in the subject line of your email – e.g. Fiction_title_your name.
  3. Do not include your name on your submission document
