Call for Creative Pieces: Deadline Extended


To encounter an individual, object, incidence or phenomenon risks change. Encounters may stimulate a sense of belonging and encourage the opportunity to participate and practice resilience or adaption in the face of the unknown. Alternatively, encounters may result in the repudiation and silencing of voices, objects, experiences, ideas and / or organisms. It may engender polarisation, a fear of the Other, or a desire to remain unaffected. Encounters may span human and non-human terrains. They may be concrete, abstract, or absurd. Thus, we call for creative pieces based on this year's theme of encounters. Submissions may include:

1) Poetry

2) Short Stories

3) Flash Fiction

4) Photography

To be considered for publication, submit by December 8, 2023:

  • A Word document of your creative piece
  • Contact Information - name, email address, and any institutional affiliation
