Call for Creative Writers

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Contemporary Art Modern Project (CAMP) is a Miami-based gallery and contemporary art platform delivering art projects, creating connections between art and the public, building the young collectors' inventory, and aiding both emerging and established artists in their careers. 

 

The CAMP is launching a biannual digital magazine, wanting to carve out a thoughtful and honest space for art and conversation. We aim to extend our disruptive ethos, shying away from the exploitative practices of the global art industry, to honor the idea that art is intentional.

 

We are looking for poets and creative writers to include in our inaugural June 2021 issue and round out our vision of a creative platform that is of service to artists at all points in their careers. The theme for the issue and written content is “art is intentional.”

 

To be considered, we ask that you email the following to CAMP Creatives Maria Gabriela Di Giammarco and Brianna Luz Fernandez 

 

Your work: poetry or creative writing, 100–500 words.

CV: no pressure, it’s just so we can get an idea of your history

Call for Writers - Dialogue Only Contest (up to 250 words)

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Who here has ever skimmed over rich detailed paragraphs of description scrambling to find the next section of dialogue?

Yup! Guilty.

Well written dialogue can move your story forward more effectively than pages of narrative.

The Dialogue Only Contest is an opportunity to create a clear and compelling story using nothing but dialogue.

Your entry can be up to 250 words. Even the smallest words add to the word-count (we believe in the power of the little guys) and contrractions count as one word (because working together makes us better!)

You may have as many characters as you choose, but the dialogue must stand on its own without any description, gestures, narration, or dialogue tags (i.e. he/she/they said).

For this contest grammar is secondary and your entry does not have to follow standard rules for writing dialogue.

Prize summary: 
up to $200 cash
Prizes Details: 
  • 1st place wins $200 cash and a book from one of our judges in your chosen format.
  • 2nd place wins $100 cash. 
  • 3rd place wins $50 cash. 
Deadline:

Seeking Prose, Poetry and Artwork on the Theme of Hospitals

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The A3 Review is looking for poems, short stories, mini-essays, comics, illustrations, etc inspired by Hospitals.

Deadline is 25th of April, 2020.

We welcome short stories, flash fiction, poetry, comics, graphic stories, a snippet of memoir, photographs, illustrations, and any combination of the above. The only restriction is a word-limit of 150 and images should fit well into an A6 postcard-sized panel.

Some ideas for inspiration: Work inspired by hospital buildings, for example, and their public phones and car parks. Or the view from a hospital window. Consider the small things, too. The surgeon's tools, the items on a tray of food, those small acts of kindness. Write a praise song to nurses. Write about ways to pass the time in hospital and the memories those activities evoke. You could tell the story of being rushed to hospital or escaping from one. The first time you had stitches. An encounter in a waiting room. The second time you had stitches. Write about hospital food and hospital beds, sanitation and hygiene, humour and coldness. Take inspiration from Marianne Boruch’s “Hospital” and consider what it's like to watch hospital staff doing their work. 

Prizes Details: 

Publication and cash prizes.

Deadline: 
04/25/2020

The Mudhouse Residency is currently accepting applications for the 2020 Residency season!

There will be three residency sessions in the summer of 2020; June 8 - 22, June 29 - July 13, July 20 - August 3. The next deadline to apply is March 15, 2020. We will review the next round of applications and notify all applicants of their status April 1, 2020. We are accepting 15 artists for each session. 

The Mudhouse Residency is designed to provide a cultural immersion: living, working and dining in the mountain village of Agios Ioannis. The residency is inclusive to a number of artistic disciplines, with the facilities to accommodate studio artists, photographers, writers, choreographers and composers.

For studio artists our facilities include 24 hour access to an open format studio space in the heart of the village. Dancers and choreographers are provided use of a separate practice space with athletic flooring. Access to the Music house concert hall and grand piano is available to one composer-in-residence per session. The residency also provides non-studio artists with the time and structure to focus on a non-studio based project, be it a novel, screenplay, video, or photographic series. 

The Mudhouse Residency includes the accommodations of the artist for the duration of the Residency, as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner each day within the village. Additionally, artists-in-residence may choose to participate in studio workshops and group day trips. Artists are invited to present a slideshow lecture or reading on their work and participate in a closing exhibition.
