call out for writers

Untitled

I am currently working on a collaborative project between writers and photographers. The idea is to collect stories or essays, which will then be assigned to select photographers who will visually interpret the piece of writing in the form of a photo essay.

The objective is to challenge both photographer and writer, and to produce a piece which bridges the two mediums, marrying them in a coherent, expressive and enjoyable format.

At this stage, we are having a call out for writers to submit their written pieces: stories, poems or essays. If you are interested, please email submissions to lbrimble@gmail.com. Thank you so very much and we look forward to hearing from you.

Submission Deadline: 14 December 2012.

  2. This sounds brilliant! I'll have to edit something and email it to you -- most of what I write ends up with an angry rant in the middle about how I can't structure the sentence well enough! It would be interesting to see it the other way round too, with writing inspired by the photograph.

  9. How exciting!
    Is there a word limit and do the piece we submit have to be previously unpublished/not under consideration elsewhere?

    1. hello ema currently it is an open brief. word limit of 300 - 350 words unpublished will be great however it's ok if it's already been published in blogs. thank you so much for your interest.

  12. Hello again Luisa,
    I've just read the comments - it seems there are a number of photographers who would like to work on this project the other way round.
    I'm really happy to collaborate with a photographer - to write a piece inspired by their work.
    Have you received any submissions yet?
    Just let me know.
    Alternatively, I could cook up something for a photographer to interpret..

    With warmth,

    Lou x

    Thanks and Happy Holidays,
