Call for submissions - Water theme 2018

Explore the theme of water through word or image and submit your work for publication in our 2018 print magazine!*

Water is of major importance to all living things; in some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. You may consider these and other questions:

  • What does it mean to live in fluid bodies?
  • How does water connect us?
  • Has a body of water ever meant something to you?
  • How does water’s changing states (rain, snow, ice, cloud, etc.) reflect your own lived experience?
  • Do you swim, ski, skate, paddle, or otherwise navigate watery landscapes?

Submission Deadline:
