Nowhere publishes literary travel writing, photo essays and, sometimes, video. To us, that means anything with a strong sense of place, character or time. Most of our submissions are from seasoned photographers, but we are also interested in stories from anthropologists, musicians, poets, film directors and anyone else who spends time traveling with a camera.

We have featured photos of of the Cane River National Heritage Area in Natchitoches Parish, Louisiana, snapshots from across Brazil from a photographer just beginning his now-successful career and a moving collection of images from the Oceti Sakowin Camp during their protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Nowhere is produced by working journalists. We are trying to make something different—something without space or content limitations that’s as fulfilling for the writer or photographer as it is for the reader. We like rich detail, unusual perspective and tight collections of perhaps a dozen thematic images. We’d love to see a portfolio about a Kansas City street corner that is significant for some reason. We don’t want destination, how-to or service fluff of any kind. Be sure your submission is all color or all black and white. Please remove your name or other identifying details from your submissions, as we review all entries blind.

Please allow eight to ten weeks for our very small staff to review your work.
