These guidelines are simply here to serve as a reference point and give you a better idea of how The Burgundy Zine operates.

Jump to a Section

In addition to our blog, The Burgundy Zine releases a digital magazine centered around a different theme or topic every four months.

Our digital magazine schedule for 2021 is as follows:

  • The Burgundy Zine #18: Imagination Recaptured — APRIL 2021
  • The Burgundy Zine #19 — AUGUST 2021
  • The Burgundy Zine #20 — DECEMBER 2021

Content that falls within our theme has the potential to be featured in that upcoming issue of The Burgundy Zine. The editor will always ask for your permission to feature your submission in an upcoming issue prior to its release.

You will be credited by name, pen name, or blog (please let us know which you prefer) in the byline of the post with links to your website along with any social media you would like us to include in the footer of the post.

In the magazine, you will be listed in the credits within the first few pages and will be credited in the byline of the article, as well.

If you’re submitting content for a particular issue, please indicate which month’s magazine you would like to be featured in at the top of the submission.

Themes for the 2021 digital magazines have not yet been decided. We will release posts prior to the release of each digital magazine throughout the year announcing each theme, so stay tuned!

Individual music submissions equate to one song/EP/album review or interview with the musician/band, and/or a feature in our Spotify playlist and digital magazine.

Unlimited music submissions means that every song you send to us for one month is guaranteed a feature in our Spotify playlist and digital magazine. These songs will also be considered for review/interview features, based upon our Tune-In Tuesdays availability.

We recommend the unlimited music submissions option for PR/outreach specialists who represent multiple clients they would like featured by our platform.

Lastly, this month of unlimited music submissions can be renewed on an as-need basis.

Please note that we limited availability for Tune-In Tuesdays.

However, the submission will always be featured in our magazine’s “Music Spotlight” and accompanying Spotify playlist for the month it was submitted during.

All music submissions are featured in our “Weekly Roundup,” as well.
