What We Are Looking For

We accept book reviews, artist interviews, personal stories about how coloring helps with health or other issues, beginner or advanced tutorials, articles about art therapy (especially using coloring,) and any other coloring-related article as long as it fits within the given issue’s theme and is appropriate for a general readership.

Regular Columns

Color On! Magazine has the following regular columns.

Coloring 101: This column is intended for articles on beginner coloring techniques, with simple media such as colored pencils, markers or gel pens. We will also publish video tutorials, although we prefer to always have a written article, with the video simply highlighting or demonstrating the techniques described in the article.

Coloring 201: Articles for this column are for more advanced techniques, such as combining multiple media, using unusual materials, or coloring on unusual materials. Again, video tutorials are welcome as an addition to demonstrate the techniques.

For both Coloring 101 and 201, if video is not supplied, Color On! Magazine may decide to create a video to go with the article.

Book reviews: You do not need to submit a pitch before submitting a book review. You do need to request access to so we can create an account for you on the site. You can request book review account access by sending an email to with “Book Review Access” in the subject line.

Unlike most articles, book reviews may be previously published elsewhere, as long as you grant permission to re-publish the review on Each issue of Color On! Magazine will contain links for all reviews submitted during the previous month.

Artist Interviews: These may be written interviews or audio files (with included transcript.) Generally each issue has a feature length interview with our feature artist. If you are interested, contact us to coordinate with us regarding the artists we wish to have interviewed. We also like to include images of the artist’s work when possible, so keep this in mind.

Letters to the Editor: This page is reserved for all user submissions that don’t fit into an article format – comments on articles in previous issues, photos of cool designs you’ve colored, opinion pieces, etc.
