Quotidian Magazine is a multi-volume series of creative responses to different prompts, all falling under the eponymous category of the quotidian. Its goal is to highlight repetitive, essential tasks, hard work that goes unnoticed, and the way these most basic acts connect and humble us, including objects and places that result from and are affected by these actions and how they surprise us with the unexpected depth of their meanings.
Quotidian Magazine is accepting submissions of visual art, fiction, non-fiction, and poetry for Volume III, “Repetition.” Repetition in everyday life – the things that need to be done over and over again, the evidence of this use. What kinds of record keeping do you do and what form does this take? What does it mean to use something for a long time? What collections do you have and why? How does repetition show up in your creative practice? Repetition can be ritual or meditation, it can draw attention to the subtle way things change over time; by keeping something the same you begin to see the changes that take place in and around it. Or does repetition feel like a trap? Does it equal drudgery and boredom?
