where it all began

Hearth, in its earlier days, came out in form of a newsletter. while the magazine was a tedious, more strenuous affair and was periodical, Hearth never depended itself on time and was published whenever an incessant need to do so was felt- be it some political or literary incident or the opening of a new joint in the city -
as a famous philosopher once said, we are not prisoned by time but by clocks, we must accept our ruins and our downfalls. true poetry and literature will come out of those.


Submission details

Art is an explosion that reveals itself for a moment before it disappears to oblivion; contrary to that it can also be eternal, perpetual, and immortal just like Mother Nature herself. At Commonplace, art is anything and everything that comes from the heart of the artist. Art is an artist’s soul that cannot be captured, but can be felt through poetry, short stories, dramas, even boring essays and ridiculous notices like the one you are reading right now!

Please submit your work in the form of an attachment to our email address commonplacepatna@gmail.com. We enjoy variety. We are looking for short fiction, creative non-fiction, poems in any form, and short play scenes that are not more than 3000 words. Simultaneous submissions are accepted.
