About Us: Wild Roof Journal is an online art & literary publication that will feature work from a wide range of creative people—painters, drawers, photographers, digital artists, writers, poets, and anyone else who is passionate about the creative process and self-expression.

Our primary goal is to provide a welcoming environment for artists to share their work. The people behind the scenes of Wild Roof are fellow artists—we know the amount of time and energy it takes to produce a finished piece, and the challenges of getting it out into the world for people to see. We want to offer opportunities for artists to connect with other artists as well as to promote their work to a larger audience.

We would like to keep our themes broad enough to offer a lot of room for interpretation. Our emphasis is on presenting the most engaging and thoughtful artwork possible, not on adhering to strict rules for subject matter or style. As a guideline for what we find interesting, here are a few points to consider:

  • Our aesthetic preferences are varied, but we tend to favor unique perspectives and experimentation. More traditional forms are appreciated as well; however, with wildness comes some level of the unpredictable and the weird… If you feel like you do things a bit differently than “the norm” (whatever that means to you), then you’re probably in the right place!
  • We tend to like work that is inquisitive and curious, at times mysterious, at times playful. So, if you find questions more interesting than answers, you’re on the right track for us!
  • Although we have categories for our submissions, we are absolutely interested in hybrid forms or work that defies easy categorization. If this describes your work, we encourage you to submit; if necessary, you may pick the category that’s most fitting and add a note to explain your work in more detail.

_______________________________________________________

Note for all submissions:

  • Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please withdraw pieces from consideration if they are accepted elsewhere. If you have a previously published piece that you feel deserves our attention (and you have retained the rights), please acknowledge the previous publication.
  • If your work is accepted, you agree to give Wild Roof Journal online publishing and archival rights; following publication, all rights revert back to the author/artist. We ask that you credit Wild Roof Journal if the work is published elsewhere in the future.

Heavy Iridescent

Share

Eligibility:

Keywords:

Please submit art, photography, writing, poetry, and everything in between in response to the theme: CONSCIOUSNESS

Heavy Iridescent is a zine looking to publish your art, photography, writing, poetry, and everything in between.

We want the hyper-specific in tension with the general. Your heavy ideas, and the weight of the everyday. We want glittering colours, soap bubble thoughts, bright flashes of personality and instances of intense feeling. Give us bold experiments, vibrating phrases, eye-punching visuals and deep emotion.

THEME OF ISSUE #1 CONSCIOUSNESS

Please interpret this theme however you'd like; the weirder the better! If you’re unsure of where to start have a look at these questions for inspiration:

What does consciousness look like? How does it feel? Do you control it or does it control you? Does consciousness need to be defined in human terms? Can AI be conscious? Have you ever questioned what was real?

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.

Courses are fully inclusive of accommodation and excellent catering - every participant gets a private, peaceful room with a mountain view.

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

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?

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

Prizes Details: 

Selected titles receive £200 (approx $250) and 10 copies of their chapbook.

Deadline: 
01/10/2020
