We are currently seeking submissions for the premier issue of our publication entitled "Timbuktu." This magazine is an imaginatory travel journal composed of creative writings by both famous and unknown authors & poets. Each issue will centre on a specific city, one that you will have heard of but likely will never have visited.
The city we have chosen to focus on in the first issue is Timbuktu, which is also the title of the publication. Future issues will be subtitled with the chosen location of that particular issue.
Timbuktu perfectly embodies the ethos of our publication. It is a distant and outlandish place, and is the epitome of the unknown. Everyone has their own idea of what the city may look like but in reality few have actually experienced it.
Future issues of the publication will be based on: Jakarta, Minsk, Helsinki, Kathmandu & Calcutta.
The whole idea of the publication is to commission creative writers to contribute imagined short stories, poems, haikus and other forms of writing all based on the publication’s themed city.
Contributors will only be allowed to use their preconceptions and existing knowledge of that place as an inspiration for their work.
This way all content will be linked by the subconscious of both the writers and the readers and will work together to create an overall impression of the location.
Each reader’s pre-existing knowledge or indeed exposure to the city will shape their own individual experience as they read the amalgamation of literary works in the publication.
We are looking for any form of creative writing, including (but not limited to): short stories, streams of consciousness, poems, haikus, etc.
If you are interested in having your writing published, please submit a piece inspired by our theme of "Timbuktu" by the 24th of February for consideration.
