The Song Between Our Stars: Open Call for Artists and Writers

Share

Eligibility:

2020.

Can’t say much about it directly for it all feels flat. The analyses about it will come. The poetry and stories about it will arrive. Later.

Now we are here. We live it, rage it, map it, avoid it, pawn it, mourn it, teach it.

Often there is not enough to create. And still somehow, creation happens. As a coping mechanism. Alternate media as rebellion. As a connecting mechanism. As an instrument of solitude. As a funnel for fear or a bucket for hope.

It’s too much for any one person.

OPEN CALL: work created in 2020, on any subject.

Written: Essay, poetry, short fiction, non-fiction up to 1200 words
Visual: Photography, digital artwork, photo/scan of other media. Full color, or b/w, No watermarks please. High res (300 dpi minimum)
Timing: created after 1 January 2020, created before 31 December 2020, Entries accepted until 31 January 2021, PDF, PNG, or JPG
