All submissions should relate to the current issue’s theme.
It’s 2021, and the world is re-awakening in fits and starts. After dreaming for so long of better days, it almost seems those are on the way – and now, some of the escapes we once planned have become possible. Whether it’s a literal escape – from a job, a city, a relationship, to vacation – or a metaphorical one, our first issue of LILAC will be all about the concept of flight and freedom.
