Fine Print is a Los Angeles-based, independent literary and visual arts magazine. Our goal is to showcase the work of independent and up-and-coming artists and authors in communities around the world. In this way, we hope to catalyze a cross-pollination of artistic communities and forward-looking individuals. We are a physical publication, not a blog. PDF versions of previous issues can be found on this site purely for archival purposes. Fine Print is published on tabloid-sized 30 lb newsprint and is distributed for free at over 75 locations throughout Los Angeles, as well as in select cities throughout the United States. We currently circulate between 5,000 and 10,000 copies per issue. Fine Print is a labor of love and though we do accept advertisements from independent businesses, artists, authors, organizations, and other things we feel are beneficial to the creative community, all of the money raised goes solely to funding the printing and distribution of the publication.


We accept the following for consideration for publication in Fine Print: poetry, prose, essays, short stories, flash fiction, comics, and illustrations (black and white only). We are open to submissions/ideas that are not listed above pending review by our selection committee. We do not publish unsolicited critical reviews of any kind but will certainly consider publishing critical articles in the areas of literary and cultural studies. All artwork should be submitted at a minimum of 300 DPI. We ask that all submissions be previously un-published works. Our staff members review all texts and visual art pieces submitted for consideration; if your work is (unanimously) selected, you will be contacted prior to publication. All rights revert to the artist upon publication. You may send your submissions to: submissions@fineprintpaper.com
