Submissions

Constellation Magazine currently publishes original articles, art and illustration, photography, poetry, and interviews. We are interested in all of these as well as  reviews (book, music, movie, etc.), fashion, short fiction and non-fiction.

We are a bi-monthly magazine, with each issue focusing on the qualities and associations of two consecutive signs of the zodiac. We want all content to be geared toward a specific sign or its qualities in some way, and are very liberal about that interpretation! All that concerns us with regard to subject and tone is that the piece ties in with both the magazine’s  aesthetic and the theme for a given issue. The best way to check out Constellation’s “vibe” is, of course, to read an issue or two! You can get a pretty good indication of our sensibilities from the blog as well.
