The Wise Owl

Canary Edition

July 2024

Artwork: Harmeet Singh  & Rachna Singh

Editor Speak

July 2024

In ancient Greek mythology, the song of the canary was said to be a gift from the gods, capable of bringing joy and healing to those who listened. Literature and art also have the power to bring joy and happiness. So, we decided to dedicate the July issue to the canary bird and baptised it as the Canary edition. This edition features interviews with Katia Ariel, who has been shortlisted for the Stella prize 2024 for her book The Swift Dark Tide and Kaoru Yamada, an illustrator & AI artist. We also have a wonderful mix of poetry, stories, reviews, visual arts, & podcasts  by poets and writers from across the globe. This eclectic mix makes the edition engaging and fun to read. 

Dear readers, do find yourself a quiet corner and take a deep dive into the July issue, curated with dedication and passion by The Wise Owl Team.

Submissions for The Wise Owl Literary Awards are Now Open.
