Call for Submissions: Visual Art, Summer 2020

Francis Bacon Studio, Dublin, Ireland.
Francis Bacon Studio, Dublin, Ireland.

The Fabulist is currently seeking visual art submissions for the Summer 2020 publishing schedule. Submissions deadline: Friday, May 29.

What we’re looking for

• The Fabulist publishes art with a fantastical inclination, and welcomes flavors of the absurd, surreal, magic realist, and strange/bizarre. Artworks can invoke dreams, fantasy and science fiction, myth, folklore/fairy-stories, and comics; and can explore symbolism, human nature, identity, horror, mystery, and the unknown/unknowable.

• Regardless of the foregoing, some fantastical element is what makes the difference.

Any form of visual art will be considered, including, but not limited to:

• Painting
• Illustration
• Photography
• Film/animation
• Performance-art documentation

To apply:

Please submit up to 10 images of your work and a brief artist statement using our Submittable page.


Entries due by 11:59 p.m., Friday, May 29.

See below for publishing details and terms.
