For our December Solstice issue, the theme is Flashes of Fire. We’re exploring moments of inspiration, flashing ideas, fiery thoughts.

We seek  arts Q&As, stories, essays on inspiration. We’d love to feature photographs, flash comix, artists and musician’s notebooks. We’d also welcome pieces on holy visions, especially by feminine, queer/gender-fluid saints.

Pitch your idea in less than 150 words via our contact page, by Friday 4th December. Deadline for commissioned articles is 18th December.

Professional writers and artists with a publishing/exhibition record only, please. Do provide links to your work, if possible.

We offer fees of between £5-35 or donations to a charity of your choice.

We will ask you to write to an agreed word count, usually around 1200 words. We only publish original work & interviews. You will be featured in our ‘Who We Are’ contributors’ page and on our social media. Previous  contributors include Wendy Erskine, Eley Williams & Kandace Walker.
