Floyd County Moonshine is primarily a literary magazine; however, we reserve pages for several art submissions each issue. We print in black and white; therefore, art in conducive mediums, such as pencil or charcoal, would be most suitable. We accept photography as well. We encourage, but not restrict, subject matter that expresses an agrarian aesthetic. All accepted art will also appear on our website. We would also appreciate art which epitomizes the unique cultural spirit of Floyd. Please submit your work as a high resolution jpeg file and title the jpeg as TITLE NAME_BY_YOUR NAME, for example, ‘Moonshine by Nate Brash.’
Floyd County Moonshine will accept full color high resolution cover photo submissions. All photos must only be taken in Floyd County, Virginia. The majority of our cover photos must have two focal points, one on the front cover and one on the back, since the cover photo always wraps around. We advise you to view previous cover photos to get an idea of what we look for. Cover photos also appear on our website. In your email submission, be sure to specify the exact location in which the photo was taken.
