sea change: (noun) “a profound or notable transformation”.

Our community is evolving, and so have plans for our autumn issue. We would like to announce a new call for submissions for Issue 30: The Sea. For us, the sea represents thoughtfulness, change, and connection. We want to reflect important conversations and rise with the tide of voices to help build a more inclusive and diverse space.

Our palette is blues, greens, and greys, with misty neutrals. A splash of orange or pink is also very welcome. We are looking for pieces that will keep you warm walking along the seafront, keeping salty gusts at bay. Patterns for accessories are especially welcome.

We can’t wait to hear your ideas.

Deadline: Please submit your ideas by the 31st of March. If your design has been selected, you will be notified by early April. Finished patterns, samples, and articles will then be due in mid-June for publication in August.

Compensation/support: Compensation is offered on a scale of difficulty of the pattern/length of article, etc. We provide yarn support. You can also rest assured your pattern will be presented in the best light possible, with professional tech editing, beautiful photography, and brilliant graphic design. Payment is by bank transfer in the UK, Paypal if you are abroad. Each contributor will receive a printed copy of the magazine.

Articles: Please click here for article proposal information.

At Pom Pom we are also interested in other crafts, music, food, art, and culture. If you have any tutorials or article ideas within these realms which you think might be of interest to our knitting and crochet audience, let us know.

You will be able to upload a PDF including your sketches, swatches, and other information at the bottom of the form. Only PDF files up to 1 MB in size will be accepted.
