UPPERCASE readers are a talented and generous bunch. Here are some ways that you can get involved in the magazine and our community.


Please support the UPPERCASE Encyclopedia of Inspiration by pre-ordering the first three volumes. Thank you!

There is no entry fee to submit work in consideration for the UPPERCASE Encyclopedia of Inspiration.  The current deadline for submissions is June 1, 2016. Subject to change. If you've already been published in one of our book projects (The Compendium, Work/Life series) or as a multi-page featured artist in the magazine, please know that preference in consideration for publication is towards artists who haven't already been profiled. Thank you for understanding.)

Do you have a collection of feed sacks (or related ephemera, photos or documents) or know someone who does?

Please view the submission form here.


Do you create botanically inspired art? Are you a floral designer? A botanist?

Please view the submission form here.


Are you an artist, storyteller or illustrator using needlework as your medium? (stitching, embroidery, textile arts, quilting, etc.)

Please view the submission form here.





I welcome your suggestions for content ideas and enjoy reviewing portfolios. Please use this email and carefully follow the instructions posted within:


Thank you for taking time and effort to submit to UPPERCASE magazine. Please note that I get a lot of email and submissions so as much as I want to, I may not have time to personally reply.

These all go to one person, no need to submit multiple times or methods. Want some tips on how to perfect your pitch? Read this blog post I did on the topic.

I personally review, categorize, tag and sort the many submissions that come in on a regular basis. I will be in touch if the right topic comes along. It may be a while before you hear from me!
