Call for Submissions | Issue #27

Publication, Nephilim Magazine, Magazine

*We accept nearly all genres (mainstream and alternative) of beauty, fashion, fine art, muscle and fitness, lifestyle, conceptual, experimental, artistic nude, etc. No overtly sexual content. Sexy is one thing, but we don't feature porn. As for the other genres, the more creative and original, the better. But if you can put a new spin on an old concept, go for it! We are all about diversity. We feature people of all ethnic groups, creeds, body types, and ages.
*Avoid cliche themes such as milk baths, sunflower fields, and mermaids.

Issues will be available for purchase in both digital PDF and sturdy perfect-bound prints. Printing and shipping are provided by MagCloud, an online self-publishing platform, originally developed by HP and now owned by Blurb. Being that MagCloud is a 3rd party company, we cannot offer anyone "free" print issues. If we want print issues, we have to pay MagCloud for them as well. The paid submission options listed above are what fund Nephilim Magazine and keep us going, not the sale of issues. We aim to keep the markup low for the sake of our readers. Markup is anything above the cost of production. We are an independent publication. This means that we lack the financial support of corporate publishing companies such as Pearson and Condé Nast. This is also why we and most independent publishers are unable to offer low wholesale prices.

Contributors will receive complimentary tearsheets of their submission within 30 days of publication.
