Submissions

Email submissions to: 

submissions@daedalus-magazine.com

If you’re interested in becoming a regular contributor, author/writer, feel free to drop us a line and pitch us what you’d like to write about and/or share! The world is waiting to hear your story :) Currently as we’re not profitable from the site and magazine, we cannot pay for submissions but what we can offer is exposure, a publishing credit and professional grade artwork to accompany anything you submit. We hope in the near future to be able to pay our writers, authors, and artists if we can gather enough traffic and notability, fingers-crossed! We hope you join us on this journey and we appreciate and love your work :) If you have any issues, feel free to contact myself @SMCADMAN, @Six_Writing or @vandman777 on Twitter or at my personal website, details here: https://smcadman.com/contact-info/
