Welcome to our next edition of the Chapbook series for vol. 13! Following the last edition of ‘Finding Harmony’, we’re excited to announce that with this volume, we’re embracing an open theme.

Just like the vast expanse of a blank page, there are no limits or boundaries to restrict your creativity. We invite you to let your imagination soar, unobstructed by any predefined theme. Whether it’s a short story, a heartfelt poem, or an intriguing piece of flash fiction, this is your opportunity to express yourself without constraints.

We’re eager to see where your creativity takes you on this boundless journey. Let your words paint vivid landscapes, evoke deep emotions, and engage our readers.
