The theme for Issue 3 is Things Unseen.
For Issue 3 of The Golden Key, we are seeking things unseen.
Bring out your work that invokes the cloak of night, ghosts, and hidden motivations. Poltergeists, microbes, tooth fairies all welcome here. Introduce us to characters who are often heard of, but never heard from. We want presences shaped by their outlines and negative space.
Present us with your best card trick, or a story or poem that quietly slips under our skin. Bring us to life with the scent of a stewing tomato, the barest tickle on the backs of our necks, or a strange strain of music that floats off the page.
We want work that is spectral, smoky, suggested. Work that has us weaving after it through the brume. Give us your intangibles, your stories and poems that can’t be grasped too tightly. Peel back the veil.
The submission period for our Things Unseen issue is August 1 to October 1, 2013. Issue 3: Things Unseen will have a release date of Fall/Winter 2013.
Please see our Submissions page for further details.
We can’t wait to see what odd and magical work will come out of the little iron chest this time…
