CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – Submit to TOTEMEAL: The Baggage Issue!

Hello, friends! Oatmeal Magazine is welcoming submissions for its eighth issue, TOTEMEAL: The Baggage Issue!

totemeal call for submissions

The theme for this issue is baggage. We’re thinking of travel, migrational patterns, the things that we carry, heavy backpacks stuffed with pebbles from faraway places, dirty nights in hostels, uncomfortable train trips. We’re also thinking of childhood memories, secrets, things that your parents said when you were a child that came back to you in a dream, recipes from beloveds, arguments with your foes, the ever-lingering melancholy from the afternoon you went into the backyard and discovered your bike was stolen.

It’s time to finally finish unpacking those last few boxes under your desk and send us your lumpiest and most misshapen satchels heavy with darkness. Or whatever! We want it all, part and parcel, by February 28th. That’s a lot of time to unload! Until then, you’ll find us cleaning all the trash out of our bags with bated breath.

To learn more about things we like to read, visit our submissions page here. Or, click on over to some of our past issues for inspiration. We can’t wait to see what you cook up.

Spread the word!

Bon voyage,
