How Can I Submit?

Want to write for Lola? Cool. We welcome both first-time writers and professional writers. We also welcome submissions from people who haven't written about art before. If you can go to the movies you can look at art. If you do happen to have an art education, well we wanna hear from you too. Forget the artspeak, though. And remember this simple rule: Write when there is something you want to say. Enough chit-chat, send us your art talk!

Lola is a Toronto art magazine so almost all of our content is about artists working and living in Toronto.

There are two main sections:

Features: Articles on Toronto's art scene, including artist profiles and Q&As. To submit, send us an e-mail outlining your idea and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Feature articles run anywhere from 800 to 2000 words.

Shotguns: This is the most popular section of Lola. Why? Because it's a completely open forum of opinion and criticism. Lots of ranting, lots of praise. Each Shotgun review should be no longer longer than 200 words. Write them brief and keep them savvy. We suggest you describe the work a little then dive in with your own subjective opinion.

Other Lola bits: Lola also runs artist pages and projects, but these are usually by invitation. If you have an idea for an artist page, then let us know. We'll get back to you and let you know if we can use it or not.

Submit your ideas to Catherine Osborne catherine@lolamagazine.com, or Sally McKay sally@lolamagazine.com.
