how to apply

We accept submissions and article pitches all year round.

If you would like to share a stand alone piece, or start a short series, send us a draft using the contact button below.

We value original pieces of creative work that are written in accessible language. We want writing that tells a story about the here and now, responding to recent events in your life or public life.

Due to the volume of submissions we receive, your work is unlikely to receive a response if your style is too academic or impersonal. 

Content on this site is driven by whatever each writer feels motivated to speak about.

We’ve found this freedom has created a space filled with a variety of content. We hope you have fun exploring the work you find here.  

But bear in mind, we do not tolerate racist, homophobic, transphobic, or ableist attitudes.

If you have any more questions, send us an email. 


mission statement

Created by Maritsa just as the UK lockdown began, The Creative Pandemic is rooted in the desire to stay connected in the face of social isolation.

The Creative Pandemic has grown from a space to share stories between friends to a site used by writers around the country. If you like someones work, be sure to follow the links at the end of each post to find out more about what they've been working on.
