With Avis Magazine Issue 2 at the printers and on its way into a store near your (sort of), we’re opening our call up for Issue 3.
For our third issue, we want our submissions to focus on ‘Influence’. Influence: the workings of others, of alcohol, of emotion, on our own actions. Influence: the flowing in, the arrival of the foreign, the secret operations of history. Give us your Unconscious influences. Tell us the influences you wish you had, but don’t. Perhaps you want to tell us about your idol. Perhaps you want to tell us about what you did when you last got off your head. Perhaps you write to honour David Bowie. Perhaps you’re obsessed with him. Perhaps you’re obsessed with nothing, influenced by nothing: totally pure. What does it mean to be shaped and changed by another? What does it mean to shape and change?
A few stipulations. Please the rules for submission on our website closely; we are inevitably better disposed towards work that meets our requirements.
Closing date is 23 May 2016.
Send your work in standard manuscript format.
Send us short prose, send us poetry, send us precise non-fiction. Send us photography and illustration.
That’s all folks. Happy Spring.
The Avis Team
