Issue II announcement

Issue II: hermes (the kaleidoscope)

In the Olympian Pantheon, Hermes is perhaps one of the most multi-faceted gods. He has been linked to guiding those of have died into the underworld, he is the messenger god, he is linked to trickery, mischief and theft, as well as being the god of shepherds and boundaries. And so, he poses a wide array of themes and subjects to explore.

This led to imagining a kaleidoscope. The ever-shifting and changing colours, shapes and patterns. I expect Issue II to be eclectic – celebrating the surreal, the abstract and illusory. I encourage you to reach beyond your comfort zone and use the idea of ‘hermes’ to inspire your work.

As always, interpret the theme as you wish. We accept poetry, prose, photography, creative non-fiction and visual art. Submissions are now open and you can find our guidelines here.

Please respect the guidelines in place, they make the work of a sole editor far easier.

Submissions deadline: Friday, 21st May 2021.

  5. […] Issue II: hermes (the kaleidoscope) is all about surrealism, eclecticism and being multi-faceted. Consider prose pieces linked to the subconscious, dreams and the fine lines between fantasy and reality. Or, in response to what Hermes was linked to, consider writing a personal essay linked to death and grief, transgressing boundaries, subterfuge and the feeling of being free and wild. […]
