Submission Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in contributing your writing and/or artwork to Synchronized Chaos! We would love to take a look at what you have, please email your work to Creative Facilitator/Editor-in-Chief Jack Hamm at synchchaos@gmail.com with “Synchronized Chaos” in the subject line.

We at Synchronized Chaos do not impose themes or styles upon our contributors. People are free to pursue their own artistic or personal visions and we dialogue with the contributors if they choose throughout the creative process to provide professional advice and feedback. With the publication of each new issue at the end of every month, we look over the submissions and come up with that month’s theme, which we describe in an editorial introductory letter.

We welcome contributions from new and established writers and visual/musical artists, and focus on quality, craftspersonship, and building relationships with and among our readership and the contributors. We aim to publish a wide variety of work in a variety of styles – photo essays, travelogues, digital artwork, formal and free verse poetry, short fiction and nonfiction, humor, well-written, unique personal experience and memoir, and effectively argued perspectives on pertinent issues.

Examples of contributions which would be great for Synchronized Chaos include well-written travel essays describing one’s experience in a foreign country adding a human face/story to what people may or may not see in the news, poetry re-examining or re-inventing old formal styles for modern issues and sensibilities, graphic art inspired by one’s technical, business, or otherwise non-traditionally artistic background, etc. Who we are, what we are about is constantly evolving and changing depending on submissions we receive. All we ask is for contributors to put thought, time, energy, and attention to craft and style into their work.

We especially welcome those contributors who may not yet have found a home for their work in the publishing world, who prefer the process of creating to the process of selling and promoting their work. We periodically tour art galleries and attend writers’ conferences, and leave the names and websites of our contributors with gallery owners, agents, and publishers whenever we find a potentially good match for someone’s work.

Thanks again for your interest! You will hear from us very soon.

  2. I’ve been looking at local galleries to show in and I would be interested in submitting some of my work for your magazine. I am receiving a degree in pictorial art from San Jose State so I am brand new in the art scene. What format do you prefer on JPEG’S? Many galleries in San Francisco prefer 72 dpi with an image no more than 800 pixels in width;however, the North 1st art scene prefers 300 dpi and a 4″ by 6″ format. I am setting my website up soon, I just have to find a decent”web-host”. I also will send a cover letter, resume, and an artist’s statement. I also write articles concerning personal stories and social justice, although nothing has been published yet. Thank you for your consideration. James
