The Couch welcomes submissions from artists, writers, scientists, poets, transdisciplinary cyborg thinkers – anyone who has a story to tell and an interesting way to tell it. Any medium – text, video, audio, etc. – is welcome.

Please send a concise pitch of 300 words max to submissions@thecouch.hethem.nl, including the format, length, whether you propose a series or a one-off submission, and a short motivation as to why your work is a great fit for The Couch. Besides, we would like to ask you to send us a sample or link to previous work, so we can get a better idea of what to expect.

Keep in mind that we currently only consider English text submissions. This is a rolling open call, so submissions are always open. Once your submission is approved, the deadline will be decided together. Fees are decided based on medium and length. Please note that while each submission will be carefully evaluated, not all will be selected – but we won't leave you hanging.

We look forward to hearing from you.
