ISSUE # 11
Magical Thinking is a term that, among other things, means the belief that one's own thoughts, wishes, or desires can influence the external world. Often times Magical Thinking can be a negative term, causing anxiety and leading to assumptions not based on fact (this is particularly problematic in our current political climate). But we’re interested in looking at Magical Thinking in a positive light. We’re exploring this as your gut. Looking for what lies beneath the surface of interactions with places, objects, and people, symbolism that affects our everyday, codes and keys that you absorb and use to navigate the world. Using your inner pull, your intuition, your instincts. That which is not firmly physically planted in reality, but that which you perceive, that which you know, emotionally, spiritually, psychically.

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE
Are you interested in having your work featured in Plasma Dolphin? Please keep in mind this issue is online! This means we accept multimedia contributions including videos, music, gifs, etc. Whatever that big brain of yours can think of.
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following:
Pitch to us ASAP. Final submissions will be due March 1st, but please message us by February 17th with process work/sketches for visual pieces so we have an idea of where the piece is heading. Written pieces go through an editing process so pieces of writing (unless they are exceptionally perfect) will not be accepted if sent on the due date with no pitch or progress work has been sent beforehand.
As you can read about in our About Us section, Plasma seeks to create a cohesive publication that has a consistent curated tone to it, while at the same time preserving and showcasing each contributors voice. Due to this, our process involves working closely with the editors on your piece. Please first send pitches before drafts! If your current pitch doesn't match with the current theme, you can re-pitch it for a later issue or talk to us about how you could re-work it to fit with the issue better. We're working towards making the best publication we possibly can and are excited to see what you come up with!
