It's been a while. I lost my laptop and acquired a new job during the last several weeks, so my access to the internet hasn't been great. This is a good thing generally, but bad for this little blogging project.
Speaking of new projects, my roommate, her very talented friend and I have started up a little press. Here's our call out:
Wednesday Press is a collectively-run micropress dedicated to publishing little books, narrowsides, chapbooks, and other printed matter. Drawn to multi-sensory, high-risk, expired, unhinged, understated, or scavenged work, we collaborate with writers and artists at various stages to publish and distribute new or resuscitated text, image and intermedia works, including experimental fiction, poetry, essays, and artist books. We hope to contribute to an informal and unsettled Prairie infrastructure of illegitimate insight, criticism, and sincerity.
Call for Submissions:
Wednesday Press currently welcomes artists and the aesthetically-inclined to submit frontispieces of unwritten or unwriteable books. As illustrations conventionally facing or immediately preceding the title page of a book, frontispieces may or may not include text, dates, or robust nudes. The black and white renderings will be compiled and published as a small, 5" x 7" book of perpetual frontispieces – the first publication of Wednesday Press.
Deadline: May 22
Please allow two months for us to contact you regarding the status of your submission. Unfortunately we are not yet able to pay contributors, although those selected will receive two copies of the publication. Published works are not exclusive to Wednesday Press. Please send submissions and a short bio with "Frontispiece Submission" in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the following address along with a self-addressed, correctly-stamped envelope:
