Call for Submissions

The Handstand Press is curated in collaboration with a diverse range of contributors from the handstand community. Its content relies on your voice!

We want to fill our pages with insights into your practice, your approach towards being upside down, your artistic research, your teaching methods, and with your stories of your life as it relates to handstands.

We want to hear from everyone who gets on hands; total beginners, experienced performers, retirement hobbyists, and everyone in between, as well as those inspired by handstands: photographers, visual artists, writers – if you are fascinated by handstands and have something to share, we want to hear from you!

Submissions can take various forms! We accept written work, photography, art & illustration, but we also love to be surprised by your ideas!

About Us

We believe in handbalance as an art form, a form of self-expression, and self-exploration. We believe that everyone can learn handstands, and that community is invaluable – for support, inspiration, and guidance.

We believe that there are as many right approaches to training handstands as there are bodies, and that our practice provides infinite learning possibilities that go beyond the physical.

We believe in a place for everyone within the handstand community, whether you are just beginning or a seasoned athlete and performer, no matter where you come from or where you want to go.
