We publish bimonthly volumes around a single theme. If you have an idea for a piece that’s beyond the imagination of legacy media and enjoy working with an editorial team which actually edits your work, then get in touch. All pitches should be sent to yearzerocinema@gmail.com. The current fee is £20.
