Open call for pitches Adulterated Magazine

Adulterated seeks to document experiences with dogmatic religion and provide a place to dialogue and connect.

What we're looking for

We’re interested in the collective journey of anyone who is departing from, deconstructing, or making peace with the often fundamentalist faith traditions of their past. We're documenting an exodus, and in doing so, helping make sense of it to people on the outside while providing hope to the dissenters.


Our first issue is themed "Prodigals" -- leaving as setting the stage for new beginnings; the departure from a preconceived or prescribed identity.

We'll be accepting pitches clearly aligned with this theme until Feb. 19.


-creative short fiction/flash fiction (<1000 words)

-narrative non-fiction (<1000 words)

-poetry/prose (whatever can fit on a single page, within reason)

-essays (400-800 words)

-book reviews (200-500 words)

-black and white photography or illustration. Comic strips, photos of collages or sculpture, etc. welcome.

-something else interesting. Make a good pitch!
