Sixty Inches From Center: Pitch Submission
Thank you for taking time to submit your pitch to Sixty Inches From Center! If you haven't already, please review the pitch guidelines.

Sixty welcomes writers and artists of all experience levels and backgrounds to pitch ideas for traditional and experimental arts writing as well as creative writing around topics and practices that are relevant to the cultural landscapes of the Midwest.

Priority will be given to writing by, about, and for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ artists, artists with disabilities, and the long list of writing, art-making, and cultural practices that have been neglected in mainstream conversations and canons. We publish writing, photography, art, archive materials, video, and conversations that are thoughtful, generative, experimental, and relatable to our variety of readers.

Our editorial team meets twice a month to go through pitches. Please note that if your pitch isn't accepted initially, we'll often ask for clarification or revision rather than discarding the pitch altogether.
