Your magazine needs you!


It’s important for Actual Size to feature a wide variety of both writing and visual content. We work with a mixture of talented writers and visual artists in many fields to achieve this mix, some of whom are longstanding industry professionals, others who haven’t been previously published but have something wonderful to say.


Please contact us with suggestions for contributions, or point us towards anything you think we should be taking a look at that you feel would fit well in the magazine. If you haven’t contributed before, we recommend that you email us to request a contributor pack, which has further information about the best ways to go about contributing, along with some helpful advice.


Please ensure that you’re fully familiar with the magazine before suggesting contributions. We LOVE including content from our readership.


Please note that we do accept unsolicited articles and content suggestions and will take a look at all of these. However, we cannot guarantee inclusion of unsolicited material. In most cases it’s preferable to contact us initially with a proposal as opposed to a finished article.
