The Illustrated Magazine of New Writing; Popshot is an illustrated literary magazine that publishes short stories, flash fiction, and poetry from the literary new blood.

From the very first issue, we've always wanted Popshot to be a platform for some of the most exciting new writing from around the globe, priding ourselves on the fact that our contributors are chosen for the quality of their work, rather than the influence of their names. Subsequently, the magazine has become known as one of the finest places to find literary and illustrative talent with Dazed & Confused naming it as "a who isn't yet who of contemporary literature".


We're always on the lookout for talented illustrators - both emerging and established - who can produce beautiful editorial and narrative illustration work in response to the poetry and short fiction that we publish.

So if you're an illustrator and think that your work might sit nicely within the pages of Popshot Magazine, contact us at with a few friendly words and a link to your website or online portfolio. Despite receiving a number of portfolios every day, we endeavour to respond to every illustrator that takes the time to send in their work to us.


Popshot is now closed for literary submissions but will open up again on June 1st 2015 for our 14th issue. So, if you think that your short fiction or poetry belongs in Popshot Magazine, sign up to the literature mailing list below and be the first to hear the details about our next submissions opening. We don't email often but with any luck, it'll be an absolute riot when we do.

We also advise potential contributors to pick up a copy of the magazine. Over the years we've noticed that those who have read the magazine tend to send in the most fitting writing as they have a stronger idea of what we like to publish. So if you want to become one of Popshot's writers, try becoming one of its readers.
