OPEN CALL: Sound poetry
Jun 08, 2009 1:43 am
a s l o n g a s i t t a k e s, a sound poetry magazine published by the Atlanta Poets Group, is seeking submissions. We are looking for sound poetry, scores for sound poetry and essays on sound poetry. What is sound poetry? you ask. Good question. It's one of those know it when you see (hear) it kind of things. It's probably not music (thanks Dick Higgins). It might be noise. If you think about a spectrum of possible noise made by the human body (or simulations thereof or substitutions therefor), and at one end of the spectrum is a person reading her poem and at the other end is abstract noise, we're looking for works that fall towards the latter end. We are looking for works in/of/against the tradition(s) of Ball, Schwitters, Henri Chopin, Jandl, Cobbing, The Four Horsemen, Fylkingen Group... hopefully by now you get the idea. We're looking for stuff that will push/redefine the limits. The magazine is web-based. Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org in one of the following formats: .mp3, .wav, .wma, or flac. Please query before sending in other formats. If you can't get us the work via email, just send an email and let us know, and we can find another way. We don't know how long it will take to get back to you on your submissions, just be cool. We can't pay you anything for your work. All work that appears in the magazine will be available for download from the magazine's site under the Creative Commons Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/); if you are not comfortable with making your work available in that way, let us know and we can probably work something out.
