Thanks for joining us.
Hello there. Meet Orla and Sinéad, the co-editors of this new literary magazine. We decided to create something to reflect HUMANS.
If you’re thinking, “huh what’s sonder eh ye arseholes making up words,” it’s that existential feeling you get when you’re walking down the street or sitting in the pub and are overcome by the realization that everyone you pass is just out there doing their own thing, thinking their own thoughts and living their own lives. It’s kinda freaky.
We want this zine to reflect everyday people and how extraordinary each individual is. Sonder doesn’t have to be a solitary feeling, which is why we want to put it all together in this little haven for individuality. We want people to open up this publication and find themselves reflected in other people’s work.
So, if you like the sound of it, our first publication is going to be all about Sonder. What makes people different and, in that, what brings people together.
We want to publish fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry based around the individual and how we interact with each other. We want you, the writer, to get into the mind of someone sitting across from you on the Dart home, or the fella who just asked to bum a lighter outside the George, or even the Aisling wearing runners to work. Challenge yourself and become someone new through your own personal creativity.
