Would you like to write for Chain Reaction?

Get in touch to share your idea, and we’ll discuss the best length/edition. Expressions of interest close a week before the submission due date. If you want us to work with you on your piece (e.g. writing style, flow of the piece etc.), send us a draft (via email) – at least a week before the submission deadline.

Submit your article to the edition’s Submission Form - by the submission deadline.

We’ll then liaise with you as we edit, polish, and proofread the article (note - editing and proof-reading are different processes; we may work with you on editing the piece, before we proofread the final version.)

We compile and print the magazine (this can take up to 2 months after you submit!). 

We welcome articles, book reviews, campaign updates, artworks, poems, stories - even if you've never written or published anything before. So get in touch with your idea!

Unfortunately we cannot pay for contributions, although we do have a small fund for First Nations contributors. All contributors get a free copy of the edition though!
