DAWN

LIGHT BEYOND

DARKNESS

"never feel guilty for starting again"

– Rupi Kaur

The rising sun brings about a new day, another chance to grow. Its rays can chase away the darkness, both from the past night and from our past selves. Dawn is a symbol of beginnings and new opportunities.

We will be looking for content that reflects birth and rebirth, forward movement, and growth. We are particularly interested in submissions from those who are at the start of their writing journey.
