Calligram is a new arts, culture, and literature magazine for the East Midlands produced by Bees Make Honey Creative Community
Deadline for submissions: 20th December 2017
All ages, all genders, all races, all cultures, all classes, all sexualities, all thinkers, all educations, all schools of life and art, all sarcasm, all irreverence, all doom, all joy, all realities, all fictions, all factions, all dystopias and utopias, all do-good liberal hippies, all doom-filled nihilists, all misunderstood misanthropes, all the best, all the brightest…
There’s greatness in all walks of art just begging to be unearthed. And that’s why we’re here.
We believe in originality, in fearless expression, in experimental dabblings, in humour in all its forms, in unique stories and unique perspectives, in being open to the wider pool of talent that exists untapped. We believe in giving great content room to breathe. No filler, no middle-of-the-road twaddle, no cynical self-interest, no shit design stifling great content.
