Despite its questionable reputation for killing cats, curiosity is one of the finest traits of humankind. It was the thing that sent man to the moon, Christopher Columbus to the New World and Alice down the rabbit hole. Curiosity breeds exploration, invention and, on a fairly regular basis, some form of destruction. It is the tentative footstep before the leap into the unknown, and as a result, could be argued to be one of the most intriguing words in the English language.
With that in mind, Popshot has decided to name it as the theme for their forthcoming fourteenth issue, The Curious Issue, which is now open for literary submissions. If you would like the opportunity to have your short fiction or poetry published and illustrated in the next issue of the magazine, find out the full submissions guidelines at Popshot’s submit page — and make sure that you send your work in long before the deadline of July 20th.
