Submit to Pezhead Monthly!

Submissions to Pezhead Monthly are always welcome. Sharing your appreciation of Pez in literary or artistic format will, in some small way, make the world a better place. (This has not been scientifically proven, but I have a good hunch about it.) Please read on for details about content requirements, submission acceptance, and payment for submissions.


Here's the main requirement for any and all submissions to Pezhead Monthly: The submission must relate someway, somehow, to Pez.

Having said that, please don't just submit a list of your Pez collection. Instead, try to think "outside of the dispenser." Imagine yourself as a Pez dispenser. Compose an ode to the famous design of a Pez dispenser, or to the taste of Pez candy, or just to the happiness you get from popping a Pez. Have a look at the PezheadMonthly.com archive for some ideas. And by all means, creativity is encouraged. You don't need to limit yourself to the written word- photographs and artwork with a Pez theme are welcomed as well.

And, as of June 2008, your video submissions are also accepted!

Regarding length of submissions, there is virtually no limit. However, any submissions over 750 words may be split out among two or more issues by the editor. If submitting a photo or artwork, I would request that you do your best to keep each file to a maximum of 50 KB, out of respect to those readers with slower web connections.

Your submission can be under your name, a nomme de plume, or simply as "Anonymous" if you wish. However, a valid e-mail address is required for all submissions, so that Pezhead Monthly can respond to you as necessary.

I would only request that you refrain from sending in any vulgar or otherwise inappropriate material. This is, after all, a Pez newsletter meant to be enjoyed by kids of all ages.

Submission Acceptance

You don't need to be Shakespeare or Rembrandt to have a submission accepted by Pezhead Monthly. All you have to do is express your appreciation of Pez in an artisitic, literary, poetic, or humorous way. Simply put, if you take the time to submit a creative tribute to Pez, your efforts will be given the recognition they deserve. Also, please only submit your original work. Pezhead Monthly will strive to verify that each submission is in fact created by the person submitting it (or is at least deemed acceptable for submission by the person who created it).

If a submission needs some minor editorial tweaking (typos, etc.), the editor will take care of this. If more substantial revising is needed, the editor will be happy to work with you on this.

Lastly, all submissions to Pezhead Monthly become the shared property of Pezhead Monthly and you. This means that you may send and/or publish your submissions to anyone else you'd like, even if it is already featured on the pages of Pezhead Monthly.

Payment Policy

I'll be painfully honest here: At this time, Pezhead Monthly makes no money. Although the Store section of this site offers PezheadMonthly.com stuff for purchase, and provides for the opportunity to donate to the newsletter if interested, any money that comes in at this point is dedicated to offsetting costs of web hosting.

And so I regret to inform that at this point I will be unable to pay for any submissions accepted to Pezhead Monthly. I can, however, provide you with a free paper copy of the most recent Pez Poetry Slam issue (see the archives for all past Pez Poetry Slams). In addition, your accepted submission will also be featured online, and you can pass along the link to your submission to all of your friends and family.

Pezhead Monthly wants your submission!

I encourage you to share your creative talents by submitting to Pezhead Monthly. You can submit via the form on the Contact page, or via e-mail to joe@pezheadmonthly.com (e-mail is preferable for longer written pieces and for attachments such as photos and artwork).
