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.

If you're an illustrator and think that your work could be a fine addition to our future issues, contact us at illustration@popshotpopshot.com 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.
