Pitch us your ideas

We are open for submissions! Our online content follows quarterly themes, this month we are exploring, dissecting and unravelling Identity.

Submissions of fiction and non-fiction pitches should be 250-300 words long, outlining why this would speak to the theme. Final pieces should have a minimum word count of 750-words.

Poetry submissions can be written or recorded, if the poem you would like to pitch does not yet exist, please send us an example of your work and an explanation of how you see it sitting on Make It in Brixton.

We accept pitches for interviews with writers, artists, creatives, makers – anyone whose voice you think we should be hearing. Please have a look at our interviews to get a sense of our style. Pitches should be 250 words long, outlining why this would speak to the theme, our audience and more information on the person you are interviewing.

If you would be interested in writing for our Advice column please contact us with more information on the article you have in mind.

We are open to publishing work unconstrained by form, subject or genre, it is important to us that we remain inclusive and accessible to a non-specialised readership, please bare this in mind.

Visual artists can also get in touch to be involved in online exhibitions or to feature in our Brixton Diaries. Brixton Diaries is a more informal space where you can share pages of your sketchbook or a photographic journal, while our Online Exhibitions follow a more traditional format.

Contact us on info@inbrixton.org with the subject line SUBMISSION – [If you know which theme you would like to respond to please add that in the subject line].

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
