Incite generally publishes 2-3 full issues per year; students can submit their work and collaborate one-on-one with our content editing and/or art management teams to then polish the piece. Once the theme for an issue of Incite is announced, that issue is officially open for submissions, and we will provide all of the relevant details on our socials, in our email newsletters, and at the live brainstorming meeting for interested contributors.

When we open submissions, you'll be able to find the form to submit a pitch right on this page, and it will stay open until we close the form on the date of the announced deadline! Be sure to stay tuned to our socials and mailing list in the meantime, and contact us if you have any questions until then.

Submit to the "Soapbox" Zine

Soapbox Publication is an MSU Diversity Services x Incite Magazine Publication Collaboration. It is a space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) folks to showcase their art through various different mediums. Contributors will be able to receive $20 in the form of a cheque for each piece that is selected for publication. Historically, a soapbox is a box or crate used as an informal platform for public speakers, allowing them to speak and share their views.  This publication aims to create a platform where the voices, experiences, and lives of BIPoC contributors are not only seen and heard but valued and prioritized.

Deadline: February 15 2021

Submit to Incite Volume 23 Issue 2

After our brainstorming meeting on January 28, we'll be opening a form for submitting  "pitches" for Incite Magazine Volume 23 Issue 2. The theme for this issue is "HERE," and this theme can come into play however you'd like within the work that you submit, whether that's writing, art, photography, or anything else under the sun! When the form opens, you won't have to submit a completed piece, but rather you'll just have to give a very brief idea and plan for a submission that you'll flesh out over the next few weeks after the pitch deadline; to support you, you'll be working with our staff so that we can prepare your work for publication together.

Deadline: TBA

The Incite team would like to recognize that McMaster sits on the traditional territory shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and the Anishinabe nations, which was acknowledged in the Dish with One Spoon wampum belt. That wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need. Rather than simply making this acknowledgement as a tokenized gesture, we would also like to reaffirm our publication's commitment to better serving the Indigenous peoples and the land through the creative works that we showcase in our publication, the voices that we strive to amplify, and the specific spaces and initiatives that we create.
