Partnerships & Submissions
Q: I want to collaborate with RACQUET’s marketing department?
A: Direct all submission inquiries to email@example.com
Q: I want to submit my work to RACQUET, how do I do that?
A: Racquet gladly accepts pitches for features and essays in the magazine, but please bear in mind that as a quarterly we have very little space for stories, so send only your best ideas. More to the point, as a slow-cooked print magazine we have very long lead times, so pitches pegged to fast-moving news narratives—the No. 1 in the world player striking a lineswoman in the throat with a ball, for example—are unlikely to be accepted. (In fact, we’re generally very unlikely to accept pitches on “The Big Three”—they’re great, but what else can be said about them that hasn’t already been said?)
It is extremely rare for us to publish completed nonfiction manuscripts, however we are very happy to read extant short fiction.
Please keep your pitch brief, and don’t forget to include some biographical information about yourself and, if you have them, samples of published work. If we’re interested, we’ll ask for more information.
Be forewarned: Poetry is the longest of long shots (unless your name is Guillermo Vilas).
Please submit your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
