We have no limit for creative work submissions. We only ask that they are significantly different from one another, and suites of poetry or artworks are grouped together as one submission.

  • Written Work: Up to 2000 words.
  • Poetry: A maximum of three poems.
  • Artwork/Photography: No more than a suite of 10 images in a single series.
  • Music: no more than five minutes.

Submission Guidelines

  • ScratchThat prioritises publishing the content of QUT (Queensland University of Technology) students, alumni, and emerging creatives.
  • ScratchThat will only consider previously unpublished content.
  • We ask that if your piece has been rejected, please only submit the piece again if it has been significantly reworked.
  • Each chosen submission will go through our editorial and copyediting teams before the they are uploaded or printed with ScratchThat.
  • Please ensure that all submitted files include both the name of the piece and the name of the author.
  • ScratchThat will not publish work with disrespectful language. Do not include racist, sexist, homophobic or bigoted content unless the theme is destroying that discrimination.
  • Profanity, sexual content and nudity (in artwork) can be included but must be appropriate for the magazine. All work will be evaluated for suitability.
