Bide

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


We are accepting fiction, non-fiction, poetry, spoken word, video, art and sideways glances.

Topics we especially love are:

  • people!!
  • feelings!!
  • places!!
  • food!
  • science!
  • politics!
  • art!
  • literature!
  • animals

We are here to promote momentary storytelling. There are no strict word limits, but think about between 10 and 400 words, or 25 lines of poetry, or 30-60 seconds of your voice/face.

All successful submissions will be paid AU$80.

We might also ask if you’d be okay with us publishing your piece on our website instead. Website-only publication will be paid AU$40.

We can't pay for pieces that have been published previously (including online), but if you think they need another run, please submit them. Obviously check rights first! If your piece has been published before, please tell us when you submit.

Priority will be given to submissions from Australian writers and artists, but submissions are welcome from everywhere.
