Call for Submissions: Golden Time

G_AcPNG

Alice was strolling around the Gothic castle as she reached a beautiful massive door, which she pushed, but it seemed locked. “At least this can’t be the Bluebeard’s chamber, I see no keyhole’, thought Alice musingly fingering the dark golden surface.

A look back: 2016

During the first days of 2017, we are keen to look back on our second year of existence. A lot has happened since January 2016: we’ve brought two magazines to live, Alice changed her hairstyle twice and we had the pleasure of participating in the reading “ICLA on Stage” at the Conference of the International Comparative Literature Association. What a blast!

Out now: Gothic Time

One flying leap, and Alice found herself inside the magazine. She felt a breath of wind on her face while she was falling and falling … it seemed this flight would be endless. She heard the sound of the clock: ten, eleven, than twelve, Alice was still falling.

The clock struck thirteen. All at once, young Alice arrived, safe and sound, at the bizarre world of Gothic. An ancient staircase offered the way up to the unknown. She took the first step and green ivy instantly withered and fell off her hand, Alice heard a dark voice:

We are happy to announce our new edition: Gothic Time!

 

 

Issue Gothic on the 13th of December!

In the nighttime to my mansion, came the Cheshire Cat thirteen times,

Lovingly it rubbed against my ankles, purring sweet and ancient rhymes.

And I heard the cadence of a puzzle, beautiful, bewildering, benign.

I sat wondering for quite some time, staring in the Cheshire’s eyes of amber.

And they told me: “Issue Gothic Why nICHt? on the 13th of December!”

So will do I, as I have been told by the yellow flickers in the eyes of gold.
