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




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.

Call for book title submissions




Open call for submissions. Looking for photographs or visual narrative material that relate to how two or more books/book titles from your personal library come into dialogue. Whether arranged as a couple or spread out, what discursive opportunities arise with the selection of books you have at hand? This is a relaxed exercise and should be quite spontaneous. 

An example for a submission is found in the image:

-"Against What? Against Whom?"

-"Against Everything."

The submitted material will be gathered together for a small publication and there is a possibility for the books to be collected and exhibited at a site within the South London area.
