CALL FOR SUBMISSION × THE QUILLS, ISSUE 5 × NEXUS
The Quills is the official publication of Writers Connect at its fourth issue. For Issue 5, we look out for works that address the theme “Nexus.” By this, we mean the world is one, that we are streams that source from one ocean. So think of tackling discrimination of all kinds – racial, religious, gender among others. Think of unity, oneness, peace. Send your works – ones that slimly fit into the theme, ones that are not too far from it and ones that are not too close to it.
