BIO
THE IDEA

"a glimpse of" is a journal which connects prose texts, poetry, and art in order to activate hybrid, unpredictable narratives. The contents of each isue connect through a linguistic game. It is based in Athens.

A text is being published at the beginning of each issue. This has been chosen for its idiosyncratic or experimental character and functions as a depository of words and a source of free associations for the contributors. This is called a ‘source-text’.

Contributors for each issue select a word or phrase from the source-text to associate their work to that word, and with the the whole text in extension. Contributors can also select ‘word-links’ from any other piece or artwork included in each isssue.

Contributors are coming from diverse creative backgrounds and participate with original, previously unpublished works.

THE SPHINX WANTS ME TO GUESS


Deadline:
Sun Dec 15, 2013 00:00

Issue 14 (http://aglimpseof.net/category/issue-14/), The Sphinx Wants Me to Guess is open to submissions.

Starting from a 'source text,' we are asking contributors to choose a word or phrase from it and either use it to interpret the issue’s subject in their own way, or freely associate their work to that specific word and in extension to the 'source text'.

Issue 14's source-text is called The Sphinx Wants me to guess (http://aglimpseof.net/2013/10/13/the-sphinx-wants-me-to-guess/) inspired by Rae Armantrout’s verse “The Sphinx wants me to guess.”

For detailed info, please read the instructions (http://aglimpseof.net/instructions/)

Enjoy, guess, interpret the “riddles,” and send us your best, unpublished works.

Thank you.
