aAh! – your arts and culture magazine


Welcome to the next print edition of aAh! Magazine.

Every issue we publish is based around a single theme.

This time it’s:

S P A C E

We won’t say much else, other than there’s plenty of it…

and we want to fill this magazine with s p a c e.

Therefore, we’d like your submissions.

These can include features, reviews, interviews, comment, creative prose, poetry, artwork or photography. Anything that offers a critical, insightful and creative slant on the word SPACE.

We are open to all submissions related to the theme, but here are a few ideas to think about:

  • Solar system – Planets, the cosmos, astrology, space exploration, extraterrestrial life.
  • Planet – World travel, exploration, overpopulation, climate change, science, NASA, borders and war, leaving Earth for outer space.
  • Country – UK travel, political spaces, the space between North and South, university spaces.
  • City – Gentrification, buildings and architecture, star gazing, spaces in Manchester, space-themed locations, events and nightlife.
  • Culture – ‘Safe spaces’, cultural distance, philosophy.
  • Home – Families, relationships, personal space, lifestyle, design, technology.
  • Body – Space fashion, health and biology.
  • Mind – Mental health, wellbeing and ‘safe spaces’.
  • Creative – Books, films, games, music, art and imaginary spaces.

Have an idea? Email us at aAh.editor@gmail.com to discuss.

Deadline: Please submit a draft headline, estimated word count and two sentences describing your proposed piece by Friday 1st November 2019. Further deadline to follow.
