Virtual Realities:

Themed Issue (Deadline: 21 Dec. 2019)


Is a virtual experience an actual experience? How can we trust our senses? What is real and what is fantasy? We want to explore all aspects of this theme in our spring 2020 issue. Tell us about a computer-generated experience or simulated environments. Immerse us in parallel or intersecting worlds.

Please add a note to your submission if you would like us to consider it for the themed issue. All theme submissions will be considered for General Submissions.
