RollickMag_Conversations_Issue4Submissions are now open for Rollick’s Conversations issue.

Rollick’s mandate is to  attract cutting-edge, quality content that inspires real engagement. We will consider any pitch that expresses unique and original thought. Ideally, we want you to explore this theme through the prism of popular culture and your experience of society.

You can send in essays, poems, short stories, memoirs, confessionals, experimental writing, post cards, art, illustrations, reviews (of film, music, tv, theatre), satire, photography, and anything else in between.

Whether whispers or declared loudly, dishonest or truthful, conversations are everywhere. It is in the gestures we interpret, the Freudian slips we make, and the the miscommunications we have via text message, email, and social media. Conversations can be declarative or confessional, and intensely private. They occur in every moment of our day. Sometimes our conversations even convey things we never intended to say.

If you would like to submit your work to us, please email us at

A monetary prize will be awarded to the most popular post in the upcoming Conversations issue.

Somewhere will be running from 1 November  2015 to the end of December 2015. Voting for our Most Popular Post Award will continue for four weeks after the close of the issue. Our fifth issue (on the theme of Negative Space) will then be launching on 1 January 2016. Submissions are open for that issue, too. If you have something to say about conversations please submit to
