Submissions Email: Softscreams@softscreams.com
If you have any questions or have difficulty sending your images please email Belladonna Del Rio directly at Belladonna Del Rio@gmail.com
If you are chosen to be a featured photographer in Soft Screams Magazine, Belladonna Del Rio will be contacting you directly via email with a packet containing an acceptance letter, submissions format rubric and necessary release forms. Please fill these forms out and send us the content ASAP. As an online magazine, we have to move a lot faster than a print magazine.
Soft Screams Magazine attaches a small interview with each feature. Please fill the interview questions out as thoroughly and accurately as possible, in regards to grammar, spelling, etc. Because we do NOT believe in censorship, we do not edit the words of the artists. We will fix obvious errors due to the occasional “text degradation” which occurs sometimes in the processing, however, we want you to represent you.
Soft Screams Magazine wishes to promote art and break down some of the boundaries between the artists and our readers. Therefore, we would strongly prefer for names and links to the models within your pieces to be provided as well. It is obviously not mandatory; however, we would strongly prefer it. We understand that sometimes models would prefer to remain anonymous and we fully respect that.
