In the Issuu links above you can get an idea of some of my published works and the articles featured inside, GreenCraft, SewSomerset and Stuffed.  

Have you ever dreamed of having your artwork published by Stampington & Company? Here's a how it works. If you're thinking about it why not give it a whirl. You never know your creations could be chosen for one of their nexts publications. Here's a quick checklist

  • Which publication interests you the most? Try to match your creations with the magazine. Get to know the magazines over a few issues and then submit by either answering their calls and challenges or target your work to the magazine - if you use stitching in a lot of your work maybe Sew Somerset is where you would like to start.

  • Create your artwork or look at your finished pieces and you may already have something suitable to submit.

  • Attach your name, address and other information with your work. You may want to include a letter of explanation as to why you created the work or your ideas about why you think it would interest them. Don't assume they know exactly what you are trying to express and why.

  • Mail it in before submission deadlines for the specific publication. Each magazine works somewhere between 6-12 months ahead of when the issue is released. (If you want your work returned you must include dollar amount of postage what you paide to mail it.)

  • Be prepared to wait, and wait and wait and wait some more. From experience I have seen they hold on to your work to fit it into the perfect spot - patience is a virtue in this scenario. You can contact the editor with photos prior to sending it to see if there is interest but this does not guarantee publication.

  • If your work is chosen to be a feature article you will receive a "CONGRATULATIONS' email in your inbox outlining the requirements for your article, with a deadline.

  • Wait and wait and wait some more time until the issue published.

  • Receive an artist's copy of the magazine as a thank you in addition to compensation for the written article. (some exceptions depending on where your piece is published inside the issue)

  • Do a happy dance and tell all your friends and family so you can celebrate big time.

  • Check off one of your bucket list dreams as reached and then do it all over again. You will never tire of seeing your work in print. You may even get on the cover of a future issue. Submit, submit, submit!

  • If you need help or having any questions send me an email - I'm happy to help provide further information or some guidance.
