The Pluralist Open Call

The Pluralist Open Call

10:00 - 18:00



The Pluralist is looking for submissions!

Looking for critical essays / confessions / poems / manifestos / visual stories / sounds / anything in between.

Keywords: Possible narratives - Prospects - Readaptation - Wishfulness

Catchphrase: “if wishes were horses”


The new open call for The Pluralist departs from the old Scottish proverb “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride”, which implies that wishing alone is (not) enough to make things happen. We suggest a playful take on this phrase, inviting our contributors to reflect on wishful thinking. Is wishing sometimes more important than action itself? If the previous issue revolved around social distancing and the ways in which it affected us personally and collectively, this one aims to focus on mechanisms for dealing with and adapting to these shifting landscapes. How do we redefine ourselves under these new circumstances? Are old narratives still plausible?
