SFLR invites submissions of visual art submissions, including but not limited to graphic novel excerpts, photographs, visual photography, digital media, and photographs of produced art from any media. Kindly submit visual art submissions in .jpg or .tif formats, at 300 dpi.

In your cover letter, please include the title of your submission(s), the estimated dimensions, and your full name and contact information.
