Kill Your Darlings accepts submissions of original writing during the months of March, June, September and December ONLY. Please send through pitches at all times.
Previously published material will not be considered. Kill Your Darlings publishes fiction, feature articles and investigative journalism, essays and other creative non-fiction. Reviews of contemporary books, theatre, music and film are also welcomed. We are particularly interested in retrospectives.
Kill Your Darlings enjoys reading work that has a fresh, intelligent angle, is anecdotal yet informed, or is just a little bit cheeky. We encourage our contributors to explore alternative viewpoints. There are no distinct themes for general submissions and no word limits.
Please only send us your best work. We strongly encourage contributors to familiarise themselves with Kill Your Darlings prior to submission.
Payment will be discussed with the editor an acceptance of the work.
