For The Journal of Unlikely Observances mini-issue, we’re looking for short fiction of up to 2000 words (we’re willing to bend a little on that limit, but not a lot, for the right story), that incorporate AT LEAST THREE of the following:
- power/role inversion
- water fights
- resurrection, rebirth, renewal
- transformation, transsubstantiation
- body painting, body art
- practical jokes
- one of the festivals themselves
