My Beautiful Foot

Listing for a friend:

Hello, fellow creatives! My name is Nora Novak and I’m a video editor by day and DIY filmmaker, writer, and artist by night. I’ve recently completed a passion project, the writing of a short story called “Beautiful Foot" that I’m ready to turn into a picture book! After exploring avenues of publication, I’ve decided to self-publish. While I love art and have a few of my own skills, the idea of illustrating an entire book does not bring me joy. What WOULD bring me joy is to collaborate with other artists to help bring the story to life.

The A3 Press: Call for Chapbook Manuscripts

The A3 Press is looking for new chapbook submissions. Deadline is 10 January, 2020.

The A3 Press is a place for work that might struggle to find a traditional home, work that's lyrical and intense, a bit weird, perhaps, hybrid, experimental. We like work that is urgent, that says something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history. 

Do you have a series of poems or short stories, or a long story that can be spread out over several pages? Maybe a short play in 12 parts or scenes, or even 12 very short plays? Do you have a combination of drawings and short stories? Poems and photographs? Maybe 12 drawings or photographs without text that would fit into our A3 map-fold format?
