Current Call

For Issue 6, we’re asking artists to go underground to a world filled with buried objects. Think archeaologists, 19th century grave robbers, family secrets and long-buried emotions. From the mundane to the macabre, we can’t wait to see what you dig up.

To help inspire you, we explore the ways in which burial is represented in art and literature – from Pepys and his Parmesan to rediscovered poetry written on an underground wall. We also talk to gothic novelist Laura Purcell about why this classic trope continues to fascinate. It’s all in our latest quarterly feature.

Please read our full submissions guidelines here.

CLOSING DATE: Thursday 14 December
