A new year brings with it a new edition of all the sins and as always we have been overwhelmed by the response from all our artists. For our latest call, we asked you to explore the theme of ‘burial’ in its broadest sense and you certainly delivered: from Candice Horde’s beautiful villanelle God’s Gift; Thalia, which made us think about what is buried in our DNA, to the surprise ending in Cara Fox’s wonderfully gothic The Price of Blood.
We were also delighted to see such a broad range of artwork come in this issue. We think you’ll agree Barney Ogolla’s East African Girl is a stunning piece – as soon as we saw it we knew it had to be our cover art. And we urge everyone to have a listen to Aisha Ahmad’s atmospheric audio poem The Void.
We hope you enjoy our latest issue and are inspired to look for the hidden and buried in your own life and work.
Below, you’ll find a list of our included artists so you can explore this issue in any way that you choose.
