We are now accepting creative nonfiction submissions of writing and artwork to be considered for our Spring Issue: Aftermath. Submissions are open from 1 November 2020 to 31 December 2020 (11:59pm BST).
‘Aftermath’ (n) originated in the 1520s to mean the second crop of grass which is grown on the same land after the first had been harvested. From after- + –math (which meant ‘a mowing, cutting of grass’. Figurative language came about in the 1650s.
Aftermath is now defined as ‘the consequences or after-effects of a significant unpleasant event’, but really, it can mean so much beyond this as well. More information about the current issue and what it means to our staff can be found here.
