Writing for Embroidery magazine

Embroidery is a bi-monthly magazine with illustrated features covering contemporary embroidery and textiles within art, design, craft, culture and fashion, as well as historical and world textiles.

We welcome ideas for articles and interviews that will appeal to an informed and passionate audience. Our readership is made up of textile enthusiasts as well as professionals, and includes artists, makers, designers, students, tutors, textile businesses, curators and gallerists. We don’t commission projects or ‘how-to’ articles.

If you’re unfamiliar with the content, style, and tone of the magazine, we suggest you read a few issues, which you can purchase here.

We ask that your article has not been published previously, nor submitted for consideration elsewhere. If any part of the article has been published, please let us know when and by whom.

The maximum word length for features is 1,000 words, and 500 words for reviews.

If you have an idea for an article, please send a brief outline with the main points you plan to cover to the Editor.

Artists or others interested in being profiled should contact the Editor with a 200-word statement about their work, up to six low-res images and their website. Good images can make all the difference. Before contacting us, please ensure that high-resolution, publishing-quality images of your work are available, and that we can obtain written copyright clearance.

We aim to reply to you within 10 days but this may take longer during busy periods.
