Submit to BIG MESS!

We’re always looking for new friends and contributors! Each issue of Big Mess features work inspired by a theme. We keep it pretty loose! Here’s what we’re planning for the next few issues:

We have some initial ideas for what we want to do with these themes, but we’re still very open! Want to make something? email us at and let us know what you’re thinking about! We will work together to determine final specs and timeline.

Technical details

Issues of Big Mess are typically 5 inches by 8 inches with bleed. Each issue usually features between 3–6 contributors. Generally, we like for each contributor to have 3–5 pages each, except in cases where we pair up writing and imagery.

Future themes… maybe?

Luggage, Collections, Taste, Trash, Smells, Sound, Sugar, Hair. Anything here catch your fancy? Let us know what you want to make!
