A note on the theme
The movement away from winter and towards spring heralds new ARRIVALS. In the natural world (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least) this looks like greenery sprouting through the snow, flower buds winking awake, young animals discovering the world for the first time. ARRIVALS also suggests the idea of something - an action, a cycle? - finally completed. There are less abstract ways of interpreting this theme - the arrivals lounge, the arrival of a person in our lives, the arrival of a dream/wish come true. There are so many ways to envision this theme - be bold, specific and send your best!
Poetry - submit up to five poems
Fiction - 3000 word upper limit
Visual Art/Photography - up to five images (photo essays welcome)
