Longer Than the Winter's Night
An issue just about night. From the beginning of the pandemics, our overall schedules, and therefore sleeping patterns, have been distorted and challenged. Some of us might have revealed themselves as nocturnal creatures, feeling awake as soon as the sun sank into darkness. Being in lockdown has made our work/rest barrier blurry, or almost nonexistent. How is sleeping and working in the same space like? Do we dream differently when we travel less?
When we turn off our screens and the moon becomes the main spotlight, do we become more productive? What if sleep is where we actually express ourselves to the fullest?
We invite you all to brush a collective portrait of the hours after midnight, when idleness and activity merge. We welcome past-bedtime meditations, memories of distant places, dream journals, pictonarratives, anthologies of elusive ideas, thoughts you have with your eyes closed, and many more.
Pitch in with an entry via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, 12 March.
Also, do not hesitate to get in contact with us should you have any questions about this issue.
Looking forward to reading you!
