ISSUE 8: ANCHOR AND ROOT

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

DEADLINE: October 25, 2021

The theme for Issue 8 is “Anchor and Root,” which draws inspiration from coastal Vancouver Island cities that are located between forests and seas. Anchors and roots establish connections between different worlds: anchors are the tether between the seabed and the surface and roots sustain plants by reaching deep into the earth. An anchor can also be a firm position or belief and roots imply a relationship to place. This theme calls on coastal imagery but it encourages creators to find their own associations and meanings.

What are you anchored to? Where have you dug in your roots? 

Tell us about what you are attached to and why.
