CỌ́N-SCÌÒ MAGAZINE is excited to announce our call for submissions for Issue 3, Volume 1, which will be published in December 2023. The theme for this upcoming issue is “MIGRATION.” We invite writers, poets, essayists, artists, and photographers to explore and express their interpretations of migrations in all its facets.
Migrations are an integral part of the human experience, and they come in various forms—physical, emotional, and spiritual.
We challenge you to delve into this theme and offer your unique perspectives on migration—whether they involve love, adventure, work, accomplishments, or any other aspect of the journey—in poetry, short prose, essays, art, and photographs.
Migrations are the threads that weave the tapestry of human existence. They are the stories of individuals and communities constantly on the move, searching for new horizons, opportunities, and connections. Migrations represent the ever-evolving nature of humanity, as we venture, adapt, and consolidate in diverse ways. Our world is a stage where these stories unfold, and we invite you to contribute to our exploration of migrations as a profound human reality.
