Knotions Magazine (13 May)
(November, 2018) - Given the popularity of last weekend’s Shawl Issue - every design was on Page 1 of HRN! - we’re doing a Sock Issue in November.
Deadline: 13 May
Crochet Now (22 May)
Crochet Now is looking for submissions for issue 33 (on sale 27 September) which is our big Christmas issue!
They are looking for:
- blankets and throws
- cowls and shawls
- garments (including poncho’s, cardigans, pullovers)
- Tunisian crochet
- children/baby items (clothes and accessories)
- cushions and other home decor
Anything using interesting or different stitches outside of standard crochet will definitely be welcomed! A vast part of the Crochet Now audience consider themselves to be intermediate crocheters so that is something to keep in mind.
Deadline: May 22
Twist Collective (30 May)
Twist Collective is accepting submissions for their November 2018 issue. Their themes are "the gales of november" and "micro and macro."
The idea of Twist Collective came from a desire to bring talented designers and writers together, to give them a beautiful showcase for their work, and pay them fairly. After publication with Twist Collective, designers have the option of using the pattern as it was produced, photography and all.
Deadline: 30 May
Nomadic Knits (1 June)
Issue 2: NY, December 2018
Themes: Think Upstate NY in the fall; cozy sweaters, hats, scarves, cowls, shawls, gloves/mittens, socks. Think Rhinebeck sweaters with clean lines, texture, casual with a hint towards rustic. Think pumpkin picking on a crisp fall day, then cozying up in front of the fire with a hot cup of tea. Cables and Fair Isle are welcomed and encouraged, as are all knitting skill levels, from beginner to advanced.
Deadline: 1 June
Brooklyn Tweed (4 June)
Wool People 13
They are accepting both garment and accessory designs. Their theme is inspired by Japan, and should utilize the specified Brooklyn Tweed yarn (ranges from lace to worsted weight).
Deadline: 4 June
Lets get your inspiration flowing and raise your visibility.
I challenge you to submit to one publication a month!
Remember: Rejections don't kill you, they certainly haven't killed me and you will have a new design ready to self publish
