"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Friday Call For Submissions Love <3 Broadsided Press Seeking Ekphrastic Writing

Ekphrastic Writing Wanted

Bearing Arms:  Responding to Guns in American Culture

Deadline: December 27, 2017

Fee: $3

From their call: 

“We have, according to the constitution, the right “to keep and bear arms” in the United States.  But how, in the wake of Las Vegas, Pulse, Sandy Hook, Trayvon Martin, and other abuses of firearms—by citizens and in some cases by those trained to protect and serve—do we bear that right?  How do we bear it?

At Broadsided, we believe that art and literature belong in our daily lives. They inspire and demonstrate the vitality and depth of our connection with the world. We had to speak out—we had to make a space for you to speak out—on this issue…

We now ask you to respond with words.  Below are six works of visual art.  When you submit your writing, be sure to be clear as to which piece you are responding.

GUIDELINES: Our general guidelines for length apply.  There is a special button on Submittable for this feature.  The form asks you to indicate which artwork you are responding to.  If you respond to multiple pieces, please make sure the correlation is clear on your submission itself. Because poem and image will be presented together as a broadside, we are most interested in writing that opens new engagements with the art….”

What Does Peace Mean To You? Share it with us on PEACE VINES!

What Does Peace Mean To You?

I’ve posted recently about a new project about which I’m very excited: the Central Virginia Chapter of Writing For Peace, a local outreach of the national organization Writing For Peace.

Our first official chapter project is underway! But we need your help! 

Submission Guidelines for Peace Vines

In many conversations about Writing for Peace, we’ve learned that people limit their definition of the word peace to its association with war. The many beautiful and varied ways we can define peace, as individuals or in the many groups, cultures, etc., to which we belong, too often get lost in the shadow of war versus peace. So we want to hear from as many people as possible, discussing what peace means to them personally.

Being curated by Brigid Hokana, Peace Vines will be a Youtube Channel featuring these short videos, with the hope of opening up the discussion of what peace can mean, and why it matters so much to all of us.

If you’re interested in submitting a video for inclusion in Peace Vines, please visit our Current Projects Page for submission details. 

We can’t wait to hear from you. Peace.
