aAh! – your arts and culture magazine


Welcome to the next print edition of aAH! Magazine.

Every issue we publish is based around a single word.

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.

We are looking for:

  • Cover-Art Competition – submit high a resolution image of your work responding to the theme. Everything is welcome – illustration, photography, graphic design, fine-art etc. The most SPACE-like will be featured.
  • Flash fiction/Poetry – responding to the theme SPACE. We encourage tenuous links. Surprise us. 350 words/40 lines.
  • Featured Artists – a spotlight on a visual artist. Submit up to ten images and we will pick our favourites to be featured throughout the magazine. Fine artists of all practices welcome – illustrators, photographers and graphic designers. Send us a brief bio and explanation of how your work relates to the theme SPACE.
  • Self Portrait – take this however you like. It could be a literal portrait, a painting, a sculpture, a found object – anything that captures your inner SPACE.

We are also looking for design and illustration based around our featured articles in the SPACE issue:

  • Spaces in Manchester – architecture, design, and nightlife
  • Headspace and bodily spaces
