Kinfolk Magazine is created by a small team located in Portland, Oregon. Although a majority of our staff are based in the Northwest, each issue has content that has been contributed by up to 60 people from all over the world. We willingly accept unsolicited submissions and have outlined steps for those interested in getting involved below.
As a general policy, we cannot guarantee placement based on your abstract or outline, but we approve submissions on speculation, depending upon space. We currently have little space for unsolicited pieces, but look at all submitted work as we welcome new contributors. Decisions are made roughly three to five months ahead of the publication date of each issue. Please keep this in mind and time your submission accordingly. Our editorial team will be in touch if your piece is appropriate for a future issue.
