Peril‘s call for 2nd issue submissions – “Heroes”
Now is the time for heroes or, at the very least, art about heroes.
We at Peril, an online Asian Australian journal, are seeking your submissions for our second issue. The theme is “heroes”. Feel free to challenge the theme. Maybe you’re anti-hero. Maybe you’re interested in yesterday’s heroes. Maybe your hero doesn’t exist.
To some, ‘Hero’ is a Jet Li film. To others, it’s a song by Enrique Iglesias. What does ‘hero’ or heroic mean to you? What are the dangers of seeking heroes? And what’s with all these male hero[E]s anyway? Feel free to write about heroes of any gender…or ethnicity…OR species. Maybe that means you want to write about Jet Li. Or Enrique Iglesias. Or not.
You don’t have to be Asian Australian to be a Peril contributor, and your submission might not have to reference Asian (Australian) identity either. It’s a tricky thing, identity. Surprise us. Make us want to publish you.
- Articles, essays, short stories, poetry, diary entries, zine excerpts, reviews, letters and any other type of text that you want to try out.
- (Audio)/Visual art that can be accommodated on our website (please email us for further queries). For example, comics, mp3s, photography, line drawings, flash animations, etc, etc.
- Links to your online work (e.g. relevant blog posts).
- Anything else you can think of, as long as it’s suited to the practicalities of the online medium.
