Call for Papers Autumn 2021: The Wild and the Familiar
I stand between the wild and the familiar
wondering if they've always been the same.
Tonight's is a moon worth drawing down.
We are witches worthy of the name.
Comes a gathering of signals from far and wide,
little candles burning on both sides
of all our dirty screens tonight. - SJ Tucker, 2020
Publication date: Autumn Equinox 2021: 9/22

The magic of the world has seemed far away as we struggled through the days since the pandemic began. The summer of wildfire, the winter of snow and storm, the climate chaos has continued unabated with fires, floods, and drought. Civil unrest and political instability has visited countries where life was once predictable and safe. It seems that the world has turned upside down and we have lost our center as the familiar no longer gives comfort or is gone, forever. Coreopsis’ Autumn 2021 issue will explore the themes of what is familiar, what is lost and what remains. What is transformed. What has been discarded (for good or ill).
- Do you find solace in the wild places?
- Are you a part of the wilderness conservation or rewilding movement? We want to hear from you.
- What is your vision for the tomorrows to come?
- And...what is wild: what is uncertain, what is deep within the human heart that remains untamed?
