When is the deadline for issue __?

Deadlines are different for every themed issue, check our submissions or our facebook page.
Sula accepts general submissions at all times.

I’m interested in becoming part of the staff/regular contributor team? How do I do that?

Send us an email at sulacollective@gmail.com letting us know what you’d like to do (illustrator, writer, regular contributor who uses mixed media, etc.) and send us samples of your work! The subject should read: Regular Contributor App.

I haven’t heard back from you yet?

Sula is run by two college students so answering emails can take up to a month or more. Please be patient and understanding as we try to respond as fast as we can, but sometimes life just gets in the way!

How often does Sula Collective publish?

Our online issues are currently bi-monthly. Our print issues are biyearly and staff only.

What kind of content do you want us to submit?

We love articles and photography and think pieces!

Does our work have to follow the theme?


Does Sula have an age limit?

Sorta. We accept work from ages 12+.

When will we know when our piece is going to be published?

You will have to check in with the website daily to see when your piece is posted. Occasionally work will be held and published in the next issue if we received a lot of work or if we couldn’t get an illustration for your piece in time.

Does for and by PoC mean our work can only be about PoC and the issues we face?

Nope! We are not solely social justice oriented. We are a platform for artists, writers, and thinkers of color to share their work.


What sort of information do you need about us?

Please check our submissions page.

Am I a Poc?

We can’t really answer that question for you, sorry!

Are bi-racial people PoC?

Yes, absolutely!

I have light-skin/yellow-skin/white-skin, am I a PoC?

Yes! Being a person of color does not refer to the actual color of your skin! It refers to non-white people living in areas that have been colonized/influenced by colonization (England, America, caribbean islands, etc.)

Additionally: Please do not send us zip files or things that must be downloaded in order to be opened! We do not want to risk getting viruses on our computers. Word documents are fine because they can be viewed through google drive as well as some photo files. Remember to send us high definition pictures/artwork so we do not have to email you later on to ask for new files. Google drive is how we view and organize our submissions, so if you could upload your work onto there and send us the links or files to view it, that would be so helpful and very appreciated!
