Visual Art: Submission Guidelines


SFLR invites submissions of visual art, including but not limited to graphic novel excerpts, photographs, visual photography, digital media, and photographs of produced art from any media. SFLR uses Submittable, an online submissions platform, for all submissions.

Aside from our cover, SFLR is only able to print in black and white. As such, we ask that artists submit works in black and white, or else ensure their works will reproduce well in black and white before submitting to SFLR.

Submission Period: SFLR submissions period opens July 15, 2024, and closes November 1, 2024. Our suggested theme for our 2025 issue is “Bloodlines: Lineage, Inheritance, and Legacy.”


Formatting Guidelines:

Kindly send visual art submissions as emailed attachments in .jpg or .tif formats, at 300 dpi. Feel free to include artwork titles in the cover letter field, as well as anything you’d like us to know about your artwork. Cover letters can be informal and submitting one is optional.

SFLR Contributors receive two copies of the magazine and are invited to present and share their work at the annual SFLR reception, hosted each fall.

The SFLR is dedicated to sharing the contributions of SFCC students, Santa Feans, and writers from around the world.
