The Nasiona considers for publication photography, paintings, and drawings. A visual art submission may comprise UP TO TEN images. PLEASE INCLUDE ALL IMAGES AS ONE submission (that is, please do not submit each image separately, as it complicates things). We accept .jpeg or .gif or .tiff. For submission purposes, photographs should be at least 72 dpi; if accepted, we'll ask for 300 dpi; minimum size 1800 x 1800 pixels. 

We are looking for original, unpublished pieces of visual art that explore the human condition. In an age when telling the difference between reality and delusion is frighteningly labyrinthine, we focus on creative works based on facts, truth-seeking, human concerns, real events, and real people, with a personal touch.

We’re a diversity-friendly publication that values multicultural and multi-experience perspectives on what it means to be human. We look to erase borders, tackle taboos, resist conventions, explore the known and unknown, and rename ourselves to claim ourselves.

With your submission, please include:

  • author/artist name as you'd like it to appear in The Nasiona
  • author/artist email and physical address
  • short bio (limit 75 words, please)

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. If your work is accepted elsewhere, it is your responsibility to immediately notifyThe Nasiona that your work is no longer available for consideration by leaving a note in Submittable. 

By submitting to The Nasiona, you are agreeing to be added to our mailing list. You can unsubscribe at any time.

 Response Times

We are a small, independently owned literary magazine, but promise to read every piece you submit. Given those constraints, however, it may take up to three months to respond. Please do not inquire about your submission.
