All submissions must be from current UC Undergraduate, Postgraduate or Honours students, and must be previously unpublished, unless given permission. Multiple submission types are accepted. We encourage all disciplines and degrees to participate. 

Curieux is a primarily digital magazine. Alongside publishing opportunities on our website, students are welcome to submit pieces of work that align with one of our quarterly, themed digital magazines (available for download on our website).  

Submissions should be sent from your student email address with the subject line SUBMISSION (work type, eg. poetry) — WEBSITE or DIGITAL MAGAZINE (depending on submission type). Please send submissions to [email protected], with the title of your work as the document name. Any questions or queries can also be sent to [email protected], but please include QUERY in your email subject line. 

Specific guidelines for different formats are below: 

Where applicable, all written submissions must be in 12-point Times New Roman font with double spacing. Please submit these pieces as a word document, not a PDF. 

Prose Fiction and Nonfiction – A maximum of 3000 words. Must be a self-contained work, so no excerpts from a larger piece. 

Articles – A maximum of 1500 words. 

Poetry – A maximum of 2 pages worth of lines.  

Scripts and Screenplays – A maximum of 20 pages, in standard formatting. Can be an excerpt from a larger piece. 

Comics – A maximum of 5 pages. 

Artwork – Submit your artwork in high resolution. Open to discussion for design purposes. 

Photography – Open to discussion for design purposes. Submit your artwork in high resolution. 

If your work falls outside of the Curieux submission guidelines, but you think it would be a good fit for Curieux and are open to the possibility of adjusting your piece, then please contact the editorial team directly through the aforementioned email. 

Best of Curieux Print Edition: 

Additionally, Curieux publishes an annual ‘Best of Curieux’ print edition at the end of Semester 2. This print edition will incorporate the best submissions that Curieux has received and published over that 12-month period. 

Curieux does not accept direct submissions for the ‘Best of Curieux’ print edition. Please submit something for either our quarterly themed digital magazines or website.
