"Unusual Harvest" by Mariana Palova

 

Winter 2018:

  • Theme:  Herbal Alchemy
  • Type: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry
  • Deadline: September 1, 2018
  • Guidelines

The use of herbs to transform the body and spirit predates recorded history. Wise folk observed the cycles of nature, experimented with root and bark, and passed down their secret knowledge through generations: a sip of this strange brew will bring your child from the brink of death; a drop of this sweet syrup in wine will send the greatest of kings to his grave; and a sprig of this fragrant herb under your pillow will keep the nightmares away.  For our Winter 2018 issue, exalt the transformative power of herbs, flowers, oils, and perfumes.
