Contributions

We welcome submissions on anything and everything vaguely related to Everton, football, going the match, or the price of a pint in the Gwladys Street, pretty much anything goes as long as it’s interesting and insightful. We welcome and encourage new contributors and consider everything that is sent in for publication. We especially like pieces that tell a story or that are personal, reflective, humorous, and different. Articles and features are diverse and topics have ranged from watching football in Bosnia and Peru to Kevin Mirallas’ secret diary and ideas for an Everton themed series of Black Mirror. Things that you’re not likely to read elsewhere or in official publications. We’re that inclusive we even once published something in support of Sam Allardyce.

To pitch ideas and send contributions, email theblackwatchfanzine@gmail.com. Article lengths vary according to topic and style, but are usually in the region of 500-800 words. Longer features are also published. We especially encourage cartoons, illustrations, and design ideas. Submission deadlines are usually 10-14 days before each issue is published – email to check.
