*Yep, we changed our name. Bye bye 30 – hello eternity!
Almost is a magazine about togetherness. An international collective of contributors, a mix of professional writers and artists but also people who’ve never been published before share their personal stories in essays, poems, photographs and illustrations. Almost doesn’t give answers, it asks questions and connects people in their search for a mental home, for a timeout from self-doubt, occasional loneliness and the subtle fear of growing older. It’s a magazine, a community, a cult.
Join the cult!
Let’s take up some space!
Issue 4 is waiting around the corner, now we want to hear YOUR story!
Send us your short story, poem, essay, graphic novel, photo series, illustrations or any kind of personal art regarding the topic SPACE.
How do you claim space for you and others? What’s your safe space? Is there a lack of public space? And how hard is it to give others space? These are just a few questions. We are sure your ideas are out of space!
Written texts and art portfolios can be send to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: 31st of December 2020
We will read all your mails and love letters with great attention and get back to you next year. Almost-Ehrenwort!
Note: We edit ALL our texts in consultation with you before publishing them. Artists, illustrators and photographers can send in already published works together with their portfolio.
