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?
– 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?)

The CONFLICT Issue – submit now!

Deadline – 15/11/2014

The War to End All Wars was a century ago. The sequel is not much younger.
The Cold War returns to Ukraine.
Violence continues in the Middle East.
The UN is frail.
National bonds begin to crack under post-Imperial malaise.
In 2012 236, 000 people got divorced in the UK.

CONFLICT takes many forms, from a late-night pub fight and wars of independence, to domestic abuse and a gentle disagreement.

We’re looking for you to tell us what CONFLICT means in the 21st century, through artwork, fiction, poetry and articles:

  • Are wars, discord and strife inherent in human nature? Necessary even?

  • How are CONFLICTS resolved? When is it time to forgive?

  • Is “conflict” an appropriate term? What does it mean?

  • What creates CONFLICT? Why do people fight? Why do people refuse to?

All art, articles, stories and poetry gratefully received. Pieces dealing with topical content will be favoured over those that do not, although all pieces related to the theme of CONFLICT will be considered.

Deadline – 15/11/2014

The Fantasy Issue – Submit now!

Fantastic_Novels_cover_November_1949  Submission deadline: 15/9/14

The next issue of HCE is all about the fantastical, the weird, the magical and the imaginary.    We’re wanting fantasy stories with knights, swords and dragons; we’re wanting creepy sexual  thoughts in the dead of night; we’re wanting drug trips, hallucinations and dreams; above all  we want it to be fantastic!

 Why is fantasy one of the most enduring genres of fiction? And why is it so consistently recycled?
 Is the success of the TV adaptation Game of Thrones good or bad for literature?
Is the fantasy genre misogynistic?
 Is it wrong to think something immoral or imagine doing the unimaginable?
 Are drug induced hallucinations and revelations different from other epiphanies?

 See submission guidelines.

Submission deadline: 15/9/14

It’s submissions time again and this time HCE has a real gem: gender, sex and identity in the Here Comes Everyone Boy/Girl Issue. We’re interested in anything that  challenges or questions the nature of gender, sex, sexuality and identity. We want anything that challenges the gender divide, questions binary sexual characteristics and sexism.

  • As usual, we want articles, stories and poems that tackle the theme in an interesting, challenging or unusual way:

  • What’s more important for gender identification, the mind or biology?

  • What is it like to be between the supposedly binary gender states?

  • Will there ever be an age where people stop identifying themselves with their sexuality? A ‘post sexaluality’ age where relationships and preferences are fluid and dynamic?

  • What’s the difference between a ‘ladette’ and a ‘tom-boy’?

  • What’s wrong with throwing ‘like a girl’?

  • Is art more interested in women than men?

All submissions must be sent to

Please submit enquiries to

Submissions close – 15/7/2014
