full name / name of organization:
Sage of Consciousness E-zine
An international online thematic ezine and journal created by a volunteer
group of writers and artists.
Theme for Volume 2 Issue 1:
Dialogue: Musical Voices
This theme features dialogue in all its colorful and musical forms. This is
not a stringent theme that blasts you with phonetic demands or clarion
stipulations that stagnate the creative flow of words, shots, or paint.
Free and open like the vastness of the blue above. Write, design, snap,
brush onto canvass what your creative mind decides in whispers into the left
or right ear saying what dialogue means to you in your deepest
thoughts-tapping ever so gently onto your soul.
Deadline: January 10, 2006
