Hedera Felix



Submissions are now closed for Mycelia Issue 5. Thank you to everyone who submitted. We will be in touch in the coming weeks about the outcome. Meanwhile, have you considered applying to our Editorial Mentorship for this issue? The deadline is this coming Sunday 8 May 2022.

Editorial Mentorship

Our mentorship reserves one spot in Mycelia for an unpublished writer from an underrepresented community. The mentorship also invites the mentee to co-curate Hedera Felix’s Mycelia launch events. The launch events are a mix of online and IRL action, providing opportunities to learn about literature and visual arts events.

Email us directly to apply. In the email please include the following information about yourself:

  • A short paragraph on how you think you would benefit
  • Some information on what experience you have already
  • A little bit about how you would like to work with us

The deadline for applying to the mentorship is 11.59pm (GMT) on Sunday 8 May 2022.
