is a community-led magazine that brings together creative people to produce a magazine of poetry, fiction, articles and artwork based around topical current issues. Contributors are encouraged to tackle the issue themes from original and inventive angles. Preference will be awarded to work which challenges and opens up the themes in unconventional ways.
Please see www.herecomeseveryone.me/submit for calls for submissions, including full submission guidelines.
The magazine, founded in 2012 by Adam Steiner and Gary Sykes-Blythe, was handed over to a new editorial team (headed by Raef Boylan and Matthew Barton) in early 2016. All four share the goal of creating a magazine that they would want to read themselves, and to make it open and accessible to a wide range of readers and contributors.
One year on from the UK riots of 2011, HCE released its first printed magazine: The Riots Issue. The aim was to encourage a creative response to these events and the people affected by them. The HCE team have continued to do this with other themes, such as in The NHS Issue and The Election Issue, and recently appealed to a more global community with their East & West Issue.
HCE is published by Silhouette Press, a not-for-profit social enterprise that aims to forge a network of artists, writers and thinkers who can generate new and innovative content, as well as carry out community creative writing projects.
