Website Feature Submissions

Inbetween physical issues, Dead Peasant will now accept submissions for features on our website and social media. These submissions will stick to the same guidelines and creative freedom that we have in our physical issues. These submissions are also 100% free and open year round, and reviewed on a quarterly basis.
