Poetry, Politics, and Embodiment | Literary Arts Thematic

Theme:

Overview

If, as is understood by the faculty, much of the anxiety about contemporary poetry can be described as an identity crisis — if it is a struggle between the old and the new cast as one having to do with voice, theme, and tradition — then who can inherit the future of poetry is cut along gendered and racialized lines.

We begin from the supposition that poetry is a radical refutation of the world-as-it-is, and as such, is and has been the province of minoritized peoples.

We will spend two weeks thinking together about poetry as a vehicle of liberation and protest; about subjectivity and embodiment as poetry’s context; and about how race, gender, class, sexuality, and ability pressurize aesthetic categories.

What does the program offer?

This residency offers space to think, theorize, and write about the grammatical; about the "I" and "we" of poems; about breaking from inheritance and tradition in the name of justice, revenge, and revolution for the marginalized. Emphasis will be placed on witness and testimony as well as politics and cultural criticism as key modalities of today’s poetic impulse. 

We will concentrate as much on the writing of poems as the theoretical foundation that makes the writing possible in the first place. Think Dionne Brand’s left-handed pages in The Blue Clerk. Think the statues of the architects of colonialism doused in red paint. Think of a poetry reading on the rez where everyone is a poet and nothing feeds into the engines of publicity.

Who should apply? 

Poets who are exploring themes of self and subjectivity in their writing are encouraged to apply. This program is an ideal fit for poets who are exploring identity; the grammar of identity, gender, race, class, sexuality, and ability; the individual and collective; contemporary poetry; poetry as protest and activism; and the effects of state-sanctioned oppression on art. 

Accepted applicants will receive a reading list in advance of the program and may be asked to submit a sample of pages/poems from their works in progress. These details will be shared with accepted applicants shortly after the adjudication and confirmation process has been completed.  

Application Deadline: January 08, 2020
Dates: April 06 - April 18, 2020

Financial Aid up to approximately 50% is available for this program.

Call for Chapbook Manuscripts (Prose, Poetry, Art)

Share

Eligibility:

The A3 Press is looking for new chapbook submissions.

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?

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.  

We publish approximately ten titles a year. Email us directly with any questions, or contact us via Twitter.

Deadline: 
12/10/2019

32 Festival Les Instants Vidéo - November 2019

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The Festival Les Instants Vidéo is an event dedicated to video art and electronic poetry with its multiple forms, monobands, installations, performances, multimedia...

In 1969, Neil Armstrong setthe firstmankind foot on the moon. The same year, Nam June Paik created a bra with two tiny TV sets featuring this remarkable event.Charlotte Moorman wore it overherbare breast as she played her cello : TV Bra for Living sculptures.The event goteven more remarkable. Video art created a constellation connecting erotism, technology and thecosmos. In 2019, thousands of women, men and children (thousands of Neil Armstrong) are not allowed to set foot on the ground. They are wrecked at sea aboard their miniature Apollo 11. The shrinking of the planet andhumans’dreams.

There is only three ways to avoid drowning into an ocean of despair 1) a love encounter 2) to act jointly for a social revolution towards freedom 3) to take on an ongoing basis poetic and artistic actions.

In regard to points 1) and 2), it is not in the missions of Instants Vidéo. We are not matchmakers, nor a Political Bureau. We are simply a group of freedom loving people, and for this reason we throw open the doors of the festival to all the artistic works keen to make life more interesting than art.

Video art didn’t have its last word, nor shown its last image. 

Artists of the world, let’s unite our films, video installations and performances so that every human being can walk around the earth freely, as weightless as a cosmonaut in outer space.
