The Fillip editorial board actively seeks reviews of art exhibitions and art books, as well as essays on contemporary art and culture. We are searching for vital, intellectually rigorous art and cultural journalism. This in no way need preclude humourous, personal, or lyrical responses to cultural objects and experiences. We welcome writing that is aware of current discussions on key debates and issues so as to expand on or challenge these discussions.
Fillip’s editorial board directly solicits the majority of submissions, but also considers unsolicited manuscripts for publication on a rolling basis. Submissions will only be considered if they include all of the following: a 1 page abstract or first draft excerpt (the latter is prefered); a 2 writing samples (published OR unpublished); and aCurrent CV. Please understand that we receive a high volume of submissions and we are not able to respond to each.
Submissions, abstracts and sample writings should be sent by email as MS WORD or RTF attachments to email@example.com . Contributors should follow the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Endnotes should be kept to a minimum. Please include a 50-word abstract and a biographical note of three to four sentences with all submissions.
