Submit

Interested in submitting to London Runway? First, check the requirements below to ensure that your content will fit. We also recommend reading an issue or two to get a feel for our style and aesthetic.

We are not currently in a position to offer compensation to any contributors. We hope to change this in the future, but for now, we can only offer full credit and tearsheets.

 

Writing

If you are a writer looking to submit an editorial piece or interview, please submit work only if it meets the following requirements:

  • Topics should be pitched first via our contact form
  • Articles pitched as the main feature for the issue should be at least 1,500 words
  • All other articles should be at least 1,000 words
  • The topic should be related to London, fashion, culture, arts, music, beauty, social issues/ethics (pick at least two from the list)
  • Include a brief author bio of no more than 100 words. You may include one link in your bio
  • Interviews should come in transcript form
  • All editorials and interviews should come with at least 5 royalty-free images, or images you have permission to use, with full credits
  • Study our previously published articles in order to get a feel for our format. Introduce and end your article with italic sections. Paragraph headers are okay but not required
  • We reserve the right to refuse to publish, to edit, or to reduce the length of any submitted editorials
  • We now also accept fiction: please ensure our audience of predominantly female city-based fashion lovers will be able to connect with the subject of your writing, otherwise NO restrictions on form, length, or style
