Issue #5 ‘MINE’ : call for submissions

call for submissions

In issue #5, Kiloran will tackle issues of the self, ownership, identity and individuality.

The things that make you feel like you, the little things that connect so strongly to your sense of identity, personally, culturally and socially, we want to zoom in on them.

The feelings of ownership, being pulled towards something or someone; romantic and non-romantic. The notion of being yours, being mine, being theirs. The sensation of belonging. The sensation of losing that belonging. Holding a hand that fits just right. Having your hand held too tight.

If you drew yourself blindfolded, what parts of yourself would you focus on? What would you know best? When you look in the mirror, where do you find yourself in the reflection?

Who built this? Is your concept of yourself something you made, or something you were born with? Born into? Are we products of our soil?

The way you feel in a space that is yours, that is safe, that is comfortable. Where is that? What does it look like? Why there?

The line between ‘me’ and ‘you’ / ‘them’.

This is our subject matter.

We want your work. We want your photography, artwork, poetry, essays, films, arguments. Anything you want to provide, we want.

There’s only 2 rules-

  1. Work must be based on the theme of ‘MINE’ but you’re free to interpret this how you wish.
  2. Work must be submitted by the 1st august with at last 1 image, a bio and photo of you.

Submit your work to KILORANMAG@OUTLOOK.COM or get in contact via email or @kiloranmag to discuss ideas or ask questions.
