How it works

Contributors are not employees of Gothic Culture Magazine and do not receive compensation for submissions. You may choose to pitch articles ideas, or we can provide article ideas to you. We ask that all submissions be proofread and editing for spelling and fact checking before they are submitted. We reserve the right to edit articles. If selected your article may appear in our published magazine or on our website.

Why should I write for Gothic Culture Magazine?

Gothic Culture Magazine provides a large, diverse audience of Goths for you to share your ideas and advice with. All web articles are posted on Facebook, Instagram and our website. You may use your personal social media and website to promote any of your Gothic Culture Magazine articles and to build a fan base and readership within the Gothic Culture Magazine community. All monthly writers are given their own contributor page, which include a bio, photo, and social media links.

How often can I submit?

You may choose to submit one time, or multiple times! We do not hold our writers to a specific number of articles, though we do love when writers contribute on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Writers that contribute monthly will be given authorization to use our name and verification by us at conventions, concerts and other venues requiring press credentials.
