Call for entries
Deadline: 31 July 2011

South African Online Literary & Multimedia Magazine


Intertwined arms, self-embracing, reaching across, beyond and back again. A race track for formula one Ferraris or electric toy cars? A number, defeated, exhausted, collapsed upon the floor? Everything is everything, what is meant to be will be? As seen from the heavens: two people kissing? Ying and yang, before they worked out the summarised symbol? Winding roads and hairpin bends? Universal time? The totality of space? A sophisticated chignon? Doubling back on the self, trying to rerun old scenes from a life already lived and passed? A looping riff from some gloomy old blues tune? All the numbers that could ever be counted? Things promised and then revoked? A pair of lips twisted into a snarl? A thousand clichéd tattoos? A doughnut; a diet? A waist cinched into a corset? Forever and ever, amen?
What does ∞ mean to you?
You are free to interpret this theme in any way that you wish, to speak to or against it, to explore or ignore it.

Submissions will be open until 31 July 2011.
