Seeking submissions for special
Deptford Literature Festival edition of TOKEN Magazine


Deptford Literature Festival is partnering with TOKEN Magazine, to produce a special edition issue.

TOKEN Magazine, founded in 2017, is a literature and arts print magazine that features under-represented writers and artists.

This special edition issue TOKEN is looking for writing inspired by Deptford and Lewisham, with a preference for writers based in the area. The founder of TOKEN Magazine has lived in Lewisham since she moved to London eight years ago (excusing her brief stint in Hackney). We want to celebrate both the richness of the area, and the art and literature that comes from it. That said, you can loosely interpret the theme, if you wish.

We’re looking for short stories, life writing, photography, artwork, illustrations, poems, and comic strips. For details on each art form please read the guidelines on our Submittable page. The deadline for submissions is 5pm Friday 13 December 2019. The issue will be published for Deptford Literature Festival on 14 March 2020.
