PAN MAGAZINE is a cultural biannual with a literary bent which includes the
work of emerging and established artists and writers.
PAN is looking for passionate, talented and original voices to contribute to our Art Section.
This is a wonderful opportunity to have your writing published.
The theme for issue #3 is ‘WHY?’
We will accept very broad interpretations of this theme.

We’re looking for articles that explore the theme of ‘why’ and can take the form
of contemporary art theory, critique of an artwork or a feature or interview with an artist or artists in collaboration.
Please email your pitch with a sample of your writing to our art editor at by 20th NOV 2011.
As a non-profit journal, we can only offer contributor copies to our published authors, although this situation may change.
It may be a good idea to have a look at issue #2 (on sale now) to get a feel for the type of magazine PAN is.
