OPPORTUNITY TO BE PUBLISHED ON A LAMP POST IN PORTSMOUTH!!!
Poets, writers, authors and lyricists are invited to submit work for public interventions in Portsmouth (South East, England, UK)
With permission from the local Council, short pieces of writing will be displayed in public places around Southsea Town Centre from the end of September and into October 2008.
Taking the form, for example of public notices such as those displayed on lamp posts to announce road closures or planning applications - writers should be aware that their work will be open not only to the elements, but to the public gaze...
The organisers would be keen to receive submissions of writing that reflect or respond in some way to the very public situation in which they will be encountered by their readers, however all work will be considered.
Submissions by email only to be received by Friday 19 September 2008.
• Contact details (and whether or not these should be made public)
• References as to where someone could find out more about you and your work
• Any information about yourself that might help us to promote the project
There is no limit to the number of pieces that can be submitted per writer.
The work will feature as part of the Art Bus tour of Portsmouth and Southsea on Saturday 27 September 2008, celebrating Open Weekend, the launch of the UK Cultural Olympiad (26 - 28 September 2008).
Art Route Dream is a Portsmouth based, independent, not for profit, artist and designer led initiative. The Art Bus is supported by Cibas and ARC. The 'Poetry Posts' project has been organised in collaboration with Southsea Town Centre management. Open Weekend (26 - 28 September 2008) celebrates the launch of the UK Cultural Olympiad - four years of creative and cultural activities, building up to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
