Submissions

O Panda Gordo is a very small operation run by one single person with a very tight budget. I can't commit to a lot of editorial projects, therefore I'm not looking for submissions for new publications. If you want to show me your work, you're more than welcome to send an email, however I can't promise I'll be able to reply.
