For any inquiries leave a comment on the page below.

We accept music, comic, and indie game submissions and are happy to feature art projects we believe fit our editorial. Email us if there’s something you think we should be talking about!

Podcast Song Submissions

We end each episode of Podcast, Engage! with a song submitted by our listeners. If you want your music to be featured, leave a comment below leading with the subject line “podcast music,” a link to the mp3 file, and a brief description of the song (artist, genre, music availability, etc.).

Write For Us

Dying to get that unique gaming, movie, or pop culture opinion of yours out in the wild? Awesome, but unfortunately, we regret that we are not able to provide compensation for guest contributors at this time. You’re more than welcome to reach out with a pitch, but to be frank, we don’t recommend writing for free.

Thing is, we’d love to have you, and are flattered that you’d like to be a part of this. But we’ve seen too many publications take advantage of aspiring writers to get free content from them. As much as we’d love the help, we’d rather not be part of the problem. Maybe one day we’ll be able to pay, and if that day comes we’ll change this description. We hope you’ll think of us! Until then, don’t settle. Keep punching up. ❤
