Since 2014, Vague Visages has operated with a $350/month budget and a one-person staff (Q.V. Hough). In May 2020, a subscription platform was introduced to cover monthly costs and to continuously expand the site. Vague Visages usually works with long-time supporters who understand the financial limitations, but we’re always looking for strong voices from around the world. All contributors receive a free subscription. Read more about Vague Visages HERE.
ESSAY PITCHES: Please send two or three paragraphs (and a proposed title) to Q.V. Hough at email@example.com, along with writing samples and social media links.
PAYMENTS: Accepted submissions are paid $20 USD. Regular contributors are frequently commissioned for $30 USD. To keep the payment process streamlined, Vague Visages requests that contributors send invoices via PayPal. As of 2020, payments are made directly after publication (if an invoice has been received).
