The Other Room is an online creative community showcasing new work and encouraging experimentation and collaboration. We’re looking for submissions in the following categories:

Poetry – Anything goes really.

Stories – All kinds of storytelling: short fiction; brief impressions; excerpts from longer works; even excerpts from plays or screenplays.

Essays – All non-fiction: culture and creativity; spirituality and wellbeing; politics and philosophy. These are just a few examples, but we’re leaning away from journalistic pieces such as reviews and interviews, as we feel these are pretty much covered elsewhere.

Art and photography – Drawings, paintings, photographs; all things visual. Just make sure to send high-quality scans if possible.
