We are excited to open submissions for our Spring 2023 issue, "East".

Following on the heels of our inaugural issue "North", this issue pivots one quarter turn around the compass rose, to reflect on the many connotations of "East". What is east? Where is east? What embodies east? How does the east guide us, or elude us? How do we reach the east? Does the east bring comfort, spiritual guidance, hope? What are our experiences in the physical/geographical east? When have we experienced or striven for rebirth, new dawns, new beginnings? What is awakening? And what of spring? How does the world around us awaken to, or resist, the many facets of "east"?

We look forward to reading your work.
