Hello! We’re back (sort of). It’s been a hot minute since we posted on the blog, and there are a lot of updates for the upcoming month! So let’s just dive right into it, shall we?
Issue IV Submission Deadline Extended!
Yep, you heard it here folks, we’re extending the submission deadline for Issue IV: Heart of Thine Cards. We will close submissions once all of the remaining tarot cards are filled, which we are very close to achieving! In fact, the only thing really limiting us in our ability to design and produce these cards is the number of visual submissions we need to be able to complete them! Each card will have a pairing of one visual work on the front of the card and one written work featured on the back. We currently have received written submissions for every single card in the deck, but we still need many more visual submissions to go with them in order to follow through with our original idea!
If you’d like to submit your work to us, please check out the submission guidelines for this issue to figure out how to submit your work to us. We are super excited to be able to make this issue, so please submit your work ASAP as they will be reviewed and accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis from this point onwards!
In addition, if you’re interested in buying the cards when they release, please fill out this interest form so we know (roughly) how many people are willing to buy the physical copies of this issue!
Become a part of Vocivia Magazine’s Blog or Editorial Masthead!
Have you ever wanted to be a part of a community? Do you like writing and sharing ideas with others? Well, we’ve got some news for you! Vocivia Magazine is opening its doors to anyone who wishes to write blog posts or be a part of the editing process we go through for our issues! Here are some of the positions we have available:
We are looking for people who are willing to be the first set of eyes a piece sees! These readers are especially important as they have the responsibility of categorizing what a piece is and whether it should be allowed further in the editing process. We need responsible individuals who can dedicate their time to reading and categorizing pieces and can relate the vibe or essence of a piece to the issue they’re reading for!
Editors & Compilers
These individuals are usually the second set of eyes to look at a piece, and they are responsible for deciding whether or not the piece belongs to the issue and/or seeing how the piece could fit better into the issue. Editors go one step further and are also responsible for making sure the accepted pieces are grammatically correct and cohesive.
Blog Post Writers / Bloggers
Vocivia Magazine is opening its doors to anyone who wishes to write blog posts and be a part of the community we’ve cultivated! We want to make this blog a community; a safe space for everyone! Bloggers can choose what they want to write about and, with approval from the existing masthead, simply write one post a month on the topic of their choice! This can range from reviews to writing tips!
Separate from the editorial team’s editors, blog editors are responsible for ensuring the blog posts they receive are grammatically correct, tonally consistent, cohesive, and understandable. They will be responsible for making sure the content that’s published on the blog fits with what Vocivia stands for and is as polished as possible!

We recently launched a Ko-Fi page in order to be able to fund our cool multimedia projects, such as our card-based issue Heart of Thine Cards. We are all students that are beyond broke, so any and all donations will help keep this machine running!
All donations made to the Ko-Fi are sent to Vocivia’s separate PayPal account and are only going to be used to fund Vocivia Magazine. We have a couple of rewards on there at the moment for you to check out such as a higher resolution version of our third issue, CYBERSCRIPT, that you can download, but if you’d like to give us ideas on what the hell we should put there, please fill out this form! We want to make the rewards as meaningful as possible to you all!
