According to John Lennon, “There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love.” and with that ….drum rolls….
Jalada is pleased to announce the call out for its sixth anthology. The anthology will be themed around Fear. From fear as weaponised terror, to the fear of the Other, the fear of love, the fear of death, the fear of failure, of success, of spiders, crowds, heights, closed spaces etc, fear is such a primal and inescapable part of living. Our phobias, the things that make us human or, indeed, inhuman, are as diverse and as peculiar as the varied lives that we lead. Our fears, and the very notion of fear as fearlessness, shape how we live, how we interact, and how we conceptualise ourselves and others. Writers are encouraged to interpret the topic widely, and to submit original works of fiction, poetry, visual art and essays.
Submissions will be received between July 20th and October 15th and the anthology will be published in January.
