ISSUE FOUR: Family/Tree
PITCH DEADLINE: 30 May, 2022
COMMISSION CONFIRMATION: 24 June, 2022
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 01 August, 2022
The fourth issue of Wonderground explores questions of kinship, legacy, connection and trees. Always trees. Trees as symbols, metaphors and beings. Trees as language (do you know the word library originates from the Latin liber, meaning the inner bark of trees?). There is much in this topic that is beautiful and complicated and we are interested in exploring it all. Particularly the in-between places; the topics, subjects, people and ideas that are less expected and obvious, more surprising and enchanting. We want to be amazed, inspired, excited. We’re looking for intimacy and expansiveness. We want to feel things both heavy and light. And, goddam, we want/need to laugh.
The Wonderground editorial team are looking for engaging and original text based works that explore the issue theme within the context of landscape, ecology, gardening, design and culture.
