About

Spontaneity is an arts magazine where one idea leads to another. It’s a chain reaction between prose, visual art, poetry, music and everything in between. It’s a creative timeline where you can go back to see what sparked a piece, or go forward to see what a piece inspired. If you read, hear or see something here which tickles your imagination then submit your artistic response to us. Perhaps you have something in your archive that responds to a piece in Spontaneity – that’s brilliant too. It’s a place all about connections, not just between the work but between the artists, writers and musicians involved.
