Asia Pacific Writers and Translators (APWT) and Pratik: A Magazine of Contemporary Writing invite submissions for Fire and Rain – a special edition of the magazine focused on Australian poetry. The theme acts as a kicking off point and is open to interpretation – we seek previously unpublished poetry that evokes a sense of Australia – either geographically, spiritually, politically, linguistically,culturally,or otherwise. This edition celebrates the diversity of Australian poetic perspectives and voices – we welcome submissions from both established and emerging poets, indigenous writers and LGBTIQ+ community. We are open to experimental forms and multiple submissions are permitted. Previous well received special editions of Pratik magazine have focused on writing from Ireland, Los Angeles and Nepal amongst others and we foresee Fire and Rain will contribute to this ongoing international conversation with vibrant new work from Australian poets. Pratik published quarterly is edited by the world-renowned Himalayan poet, Yuyutsu Sharma in Kathmandu and has become a significant international platform of creative writing. You can access previous editions of Pratik here http://pratikmagazine.blogspot.comand it is also available for purchase via Amazon.
