Submissions are now Negative Spaceopen for Rollick’s Negative Space 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.

Stark contrasts. Black and white. Shapes and forms that are hidden, peripheral, other. Negative space can exist around and between the focal point of an image or an idea. Perhaps it is hidden beyond what your mind can imagine, or maybe it is camouflaged in plain sight. Reversal of emphasis. Hidden, yet always present. Negative space is all around us.

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 Negative Space issue.
