SPECIAL ISSUE EDITORIAL STATEMENT
Pick a card, any card . . .
Tarot is a vehicle of storytelling. Tarot is divination, self-reflection, ritual. Tarot cards take on new meanings in new contexts, as they travel through the deck to find your touch.
The symbols of the cards are laid out before The Magician. Metal bends under his finger tips. Before he can create, he considers the tarot in its most rudimentary form. He reels the cards back to their first symbols. They take on a life of their own from there.
CAROUSEL is holding a call for tarot-themed submissions in poetry and prose. We’re looking for writing inspired by the cards — drawing from the symbolism, the story and the higher spiritual offerings. Get freaky. Get manifesting. Consider sacrificing a goat. Speak to the cards that appear to offer the most and maybe they’ll speak back.
Taylor Brown is a reader and writer residing in Guelph, ON (Treaty 3). She began reading tarot in 2019 and has since read for Guelph Pride events and every friend who asks nicely. Her writing can be found in Kaleidoscope Magazine, Footnotes and Contemporary Kanata. Though she currently serves as poetry editor for CAROUSEL, this thematic project represents her first occasion to headline a special issue of the journal.
