Thief – Call for Creative Writing and Animation Submissions

written by Richard Thomas August 4, 2016

Submissions open until 12am tonight!

The theme is ‘Feast’. What gets your stomach rumbling? What quenches your thirst? We want culinary explosions! We’re looking for poetry, haiku, and short fiction that explores all that is edible and drinkable. Whether your piece is about a whole glorious banquet, or merely mentions the subject in passing, we’re interested. If selected, your work will be seen across the world, complimented by a bespoke illustration or animation.

We want writing that is unafraid to push the boundaries and explore new territories; work that is fresh, bold, innovative, and exciting; work that seeks the new and rips it wide open. Go ahead – startle us.

Call for creative writers

Short fiction:
Send up to 3 pieces, of up to 1,000 words each to

Poetry and haiku:
Send up to 5 poems, or 10 haiku, to

Please send all submissions as Word Documents, and include a one sentence bio in the third person.

Call for animators

As well as pairing our creative writing pieces with a bespoke illustration, Thief is also now seeking animators to create short pieces or GIFs that can add a new dynamic to a story or poem.

If you’re interested in being involved, email or with some examples of your work.

Deadline for all submissions:

August 10th, 12am

Check out issues one and two for a taste of the kind of work we publish before submitting.
