Submissions for The Brutal Issue have now officially closed. Our team of editors are working their way through the record-breaking stack of entries that came in.
We apologise again for any inconveniences you may have experienced in the second half of June. HCE received so many submissions that our Submittable account exceeded its monthly limit. In order to keep the submissions window open, we had to add a temporary fee (the minimum allowed: £2). This was only a temporary fix, and we’re working hard to ensure it doesn’t happen again in future. 

The BRUTAL Issue – Submit Now!

Submissions close: 30th June

Here Comes Everyone magazine is looking for submissions of poetry, fiction, articles and artwork. We encourage bold and/or striking interpretations upon the theme BRUTALITY.

POS Brutal_Lion maul

For our Brutal Issue, we’re inviting writers worldwide to explore and challenge brutalism in terms of deeds, relationships, society, global conflict, architecture – and any other topics that you feel relate to ‘brutality’.

As always, we’re looking for interesting and unique interpretations of the theme. Share your stories and perspectives with us. Some thinking points to get you started:

 

 

– Brutalist architecture: urban utopia or ugly modernism?

– With viewers tuning in week after week to watch beloved characters be killed off/maimed, how many of our current TV shows could be considered brutal?

– Does Brutalist-inspired art appeal to you (bold, simple shapes/ repeating patterns/strong colours)?

– Police brutality: a symptom of sacrificing safety for security?

– War crimes: what’s (il)legal in martial law?

– Violence in nature – is it okay to kill for survival?

– Sink your teeth into the stories behind emotional brutality (e.g. manipulation, break-ups, bullying)…

– Why do governments/fundamentalists commit atrocities against their own people? (e.g. genocide, revocation of rights, extortion, classism/racism/religious prejudice/homophobia)

We don’t just want doom and gloom – if you’ve got work that explores brutality in a witty, tongue-in-cheek or other humorous way, send it in!

 

(Please, no torture porn; we’ll accept graphic depictions of a sexual/violent nature, as long as it’s relevant and necessary to the piece and refrains from being gratuitous.)

 

Please read our submissions guidelines and submit your work via Submittable. It’s easy (and free) to sign-up for an account, or you can log-in via Facebook.

For our next issue, we’re encouraging writers and artists worldwide to explore ideas related to Toys & Games. As always, we’re looking for interesting and unique interpretations of the theme. Some thinking points to get you started:

 

– Video games. War games. Card games. Olympic games. Drinking games. Board games. Mind games. But is life the most frustrating game of all?
– What’s the worst that can happen if you toy with someone’s affections?
– Why does it matter if kids’ stuff gets marketed to gender stereotypes?
– Tools, gadgets and hi-tech shavers: just toys for grown men?
– Are we all pawns in the hands of our puppet-masters?ralph-collection
– “WHAT’S IN THE BOX?” Do untouched collectibles defeat the point? At what point does an ‘interest’ evolve into a ‘collection’? (And when does a collection teeter over into obsession?)

– Is there anything poetic about a dildo?

Here Comes Everyone magazine is looking for submissions of poetry, fiction, articles and artwork. We encourage bold and/or striking interpretations upon the theme East and West:

back cover for web

For the East & West Issue, we’re encouraging writers worldwide to challenge or explore cultural identity, migration, diversity, relationships, conflict and any other topics that you feel relate to East & West. Like the issues before it, we’re looking for interesting and unique interpretations of the theme. Share your stories and perspectives with us. Some thinking points to get you started:
– Is Donald Trump’s wall strong enough to hold his ego in?
– Will migration change cultural policies in urban settings?
– Will Brexit break Britain, or just burden Brussels?
– Does growing up in different neighbourhoods change how we see the overall city? human-brain-left-right-functions-rb-male-female
– Is ‘The West’ a place or a state of mind? (Australia and New Zealand, geographically East, but culturally West?)
-Dual heritage, cultural pluralisms. What are some experiences of people whose lives are a mix of both East and West?
– Is it good to be a global community?
– Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Liberalism: where is it in the world? Why is it there?
chicken-shish-kebab-soda
– Have Western impressions of the East changed over time, or vice versa? (Why do Westerners typically think places like Japan are weird? Do Eastern cultures think the USA and Britain are weird?)
