The autumn issue of The Haar creative arts e-zine is now open to submissions from writers and artists on the theme of ROOTS. Like trees we are sustained by our roots. Although invisible our connections to the earth, each other, our ancestors and culture define who we are.
“If you know where you are from, it is harder for people to stop you where you are going.”
― Matshona Dhliwayo
The Haar welcomes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photographs, artwork, cartoons and music videos on the theme of ‘roots’.
The closing date for submissions is midnight, Thursday 7th October. Short stories and non-fiction must be no longer than 2,000 words, poetry less than 40 lines. There is a maximum limit of two short stories, three poems and two pieces of artwork per submission. Please send your writing in one Word document, all artwork as a jpg.
If you wish to submit work and do not already have my email address then please get in touch via the Contact Page above and I will reply as soon as possible. Alternatively direct message me via The Haar’s Page on Facebook at
