Rules for Submission for the Spring Issue

The theme for winter issue is “Myths”. Mythology has always been an important part of our lives, be it in the form of literature, or in seeping in and shaping our personal thoughts and beliefs. Myths have been there for ages, and have been acknowledged and treated like canons. But myths have also been created from time to time by us, be it in the form of propaganda, or be it in the form of very personal stories. Our next issue is dedicated to myths of all kinds, from the archaic to the folk to the postmodern to the personal. A retelling of a renowned myth or a telling of a new and unknown one – share your works inspired by them. The last date of submission is 05 April 2017.
