The Pin Board: Doors Ajar by Sarah Skinner

When is a door not a door?… When it’s ajar… A JAR!

Our new logo has led us all a bit jar-crazy down at Alliterati HQ but it gave us inspiration for a our first weekly theme: Doors!

And with that let me introduce to you:
The Alliterati Pin Board! A weekly page of ideas, inspiration and general chitchat to help get your creative juices flowing and keep Alliterati new and exciting in between those much anticipated issues!

Already a whopping 2,509 of you have visited the site and we want to make sure you keep coming back for more.

From dolls house doors to big castle gates there is normally something lurking outside. But don’t be put off, if your door leads to a wall of bricks you can still submit – our themes are just there to get you thinking!

Call for submissions: There’s still a bit space, hurry!

We still have a bit space on Issue 3, and we are opened for submissions until the end of the year. Loving those related to this theme, or any you have there, kept in the jar, for us to see! Don’t miss out on having your piece showcased in Alliterati’s brand new issue! More info here.
