What are the submission guidelines?

Issue 1 will cover the theme of Family. This theme can be interpreted as broadly as you like, and the deadline is January 31st 2019. We accept work in many forms. For example, in the past we have published photography, illustration, poetry, interviews, short stories, personal essays and non-fiction writing.

How do I submit artwork and/or writing for the first issue of Dardishi zine?

You can submit your work here. Please do not send you submission to us via email or any of our social media channels, as it will not be considered.

How will I know if my submission has been rejected or accepted? 

We will notify you by email to let you know the outcome of your submission. If your piece has been accepted, we will also give you editorial feedback. Every piece on Dardishi’s website as well as our printed zines go through at least one round of edits. When you receive notes on your piece, please don’t be worried - it simply means that we see places where it can be made even more powerful. If your submission is not accepted, please don’t be discouraged from submitting work to us in the future - the quality and quantity of work that we receive is of a very high standard.

How do I purchase this zine?

Dardishi Issue 1 will be launched and sold at Dardishi Festival on March 8th 2019. All proceeds will go towards the Festival, which is a not-for-profit Festival of Arab and North African womxn’s art.
