&NOW 5 at UCSD as a wild, raucous ride, courtesy of our many participants and the world’s best organizers: Amina Cain and Anna Joy Springer. HERE are some responses. Now, more news:
Lake Forest College hosts The Madeleine P. Plonsker Emerging Writer’s Residency Prize. The deadline for the 2011 residency–which comes with $10,000, 2-month room and board at Lake Forest, and first book publication by &NOW Books–is April 1, 2010.
The genre is poetry or cross-genre, and there is NO ENTRY FEE! That’s right.
We also have a guest judge–to be announced soon–and she is earth-shattering in her awesome-ness.
In the meantime, the 2010 resident, Gretchen E. Henderson, is engaged in a fascinating project for her Galerie de Difformité manuscript. In short, you can request a text version of an “exhibit” from her ms-in-progress, and then have at it: reforming, deforming, cutting, shaping, embedding in ice, etc.
‘Tis great fun–as my senior writing seminar can attest–and Gretchen is considering ways to integrate these designs into the final deployment of the text by &NOW Books.You can find some great contributions, also, from two of my favorite creative writhers: Tom La Farge and Wendy Walker.
It’s a dj world, baby, and time for you to spin a record. Essential info below:
My dear Subscriber ~
Thank you for your interest in the Galerie de Difformité: a collaborative offshoot of the hybrid work of the same title, forthcoming from &NOW Books in 2011. Before the book is published, this virtual gallery invites “Subscribers” (a one-time commitment) to materially deform & reform its so-called “Exhibits.”
**Submissions made on or before June 1, 2010 may be considered for inclusion in the published book; all submissions will be included in the online gallery. Further instructions & examples can be found at: http://difformite.wordpress.com/about/. If you know of other artists, writers, colleagues, students, teachers, friends, enemies, bedfellows, strangers, alter-egos, &c. who might be interested, please send them my way!
All good wishes,
Make shift to de-realize, and the world will beat a path to your door.
