Issue III: call for submissions (3)

What are we looking for?

Visual poetry (blackout / collages)

Issue III’s theme

Issue III: hestia (hearth & home) invites you to interpret the ideas of home, the hearth, belonging, and guardianship, as well as explore Hestia’s story or the cult of the Vestal Virgins. Home is not always a place. We seek belonging in people, in feelings and in our history. Family dynamics are often given rather than chosen. Do we perhaps all have a constant in our lives, like a flame, that if it should burn out, we will fail? Explore too what womanhood means to you: Hestia chose virginity instead of a married life but did that really mean freedom?

We would love to see poetic responses either in written form or formatted as an image.
