Rocky Street Press exists because artists of all kinds keep creating awesome things and sharing them with us. Thank you!
We publish all kinds of things: non fiction articles, first hand personal accounts, short fiction, poetry, short films, music, spoken word audio, photography, visual art, reviews…. if you can find a way to stick it to a web page, we’ll consider it!
We’re always open to submissions in any art form, on any theme. First preference goes to artists and writers from Central Queensland (roughly the area from Mackay to Bundaberg and west to the Gemfields) but we’ll consider works by anyone from rural or regional Australia.
Throughout 2019 we’ll also be putting out specific calls for contributions, to tie into some adventures we have planned.
Here’s what we’d really like to see in January-March this year:
Australian women’s history, particularly by female writers and artists
Works of any kind by Indigenous artists, writers and other creatives
Essays, fiction or poetry relating to military history, particularly the First World War era
First hand accounts of war by anyone with lived experience: servicepeople, people in supporting roles such as the Land Army or medical sector, or civillians
First hand accounts from Irish people in Australia, or Australians in Ireland
Poetry in all its forms
First hand accounts about rescue pets
In 2019, we’ll be paying all our contributing artists. Payment will depend on the length and style of the piece, and may also take other factors into account.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
