New theme: NONSENSE

Hello all, and thanks to those of you who made it to the launch party for our WILD issue last Tuesday. It well and truly lived up to its name (photos here), and celebrated one of our finest issues yet. For those of you who couldn't make it, it's going to be distributed around the university in the next few days, so make sure you grab a copy then. Or if you're simply too lazy (or busy!) to leave the house, it can be browsed online here.

Now onto more pressing matters: Helicon is delighted to announce our third and final theme of this year: NONSENSE. Make sense of it if you can (as loosely or literally as you like) and email your art, photography, poetry, prose and features submissions with your name and medium as the subject (eg. Lewis Carroll Prose) to before the deadline of May 1st. All submissions will be lovingly recieved and provided with full feedback by our friendly editorial team.

We're also running a competition for our NONSENSE issue: best made-up word. As sensical or nonsensical as you like, please submit yours to with a short definition to help explain it (or not). The top ten entries will be published in the nonsense issue, and the top three will even be given the honour of illustration by our prestigious illustrator's network!

Please don't hesitate to drop us an email if you have any questions. We look forward to receiving your submissions and competition entries!
