Kill Your Darlings Open for Non-fiction Pitches

Non-fiction submissions are now open for commentary, essays, memoir, reviews and interviews to be published online in Kill Your Darlings magazine in 2021.

What KYD is looking for:

  • Essay/Commentary (1000–2000 words) that analyses a cultural, political or societal issue, particularly one that readers may not understand the nuances or implications of. Longer, investigative feature essays (2000–3000 words) will also be considered.
  • Memoir or personal essay (1000–1500 words) that reflects or engages with any aspect of life, identity and culture.
  • Cultural criticism (1000–1500 words) that engages or illuminates a piece of culture, particularly one that has wider ramifications for society or reflects broader trends.
  • Work that doesn’t quite fit within the above categories but you think would be a good fit.

Closing date: Friday 19 March 2021.

Please note that only pitches from current KYD Members will be accepted; however, you can join before you submit your work.

Please visit KYD‘s website for further details, tips on pitching, and to submit.
