ISSUE 4
SUBMISSIONS OPEN 
MAY 1ST 2024

THEME: DISCO 🪩

Step onto the neon-lit dance floor, where glitter falls like sinister confetti. The pulse of music quickens with each beat, leading you deeper into the labyrinth of bodies. Shadows lurk; masks conceal, isolation and claustrophobia seep through the glitz as lust, obsession, betrayal and abandonment combine.

 

For Issue 4, we’re looking for submissions that fulfil the theme of ‘Disco.’ Think: a 2008 Skins party gone wrong, a ‘Prom Night’ drama, a Carrie-inspired slasher. Think you’ve got the perfect tale? Come, join the party.
