For the fourth installment of the Ekphastic! reading series, to be held June 23, the 'Lectric Collective is going Extra Public. Which means, we're opening the first reading slot for submissions. In the past, opening readers have been younger poets who are at an early point in their careers and are interested in the greater creative community. If you are accepted, we will distribute your work to a group of hand-selected artists who then create an original piece in conversation with your language. Past works have been made in media as diverse as illustration, sculpture, painting, sound, video and photography.
You have never published a full-length book and no more than one chapbook.
You live close enough to Oakland, CA to be able to make it to the reading.
You are interested in interartistic collaboration and in regenerations between media.
Poetry should be sent as an attachment with no identifying information (including the file name) so that we can anonymize the submission process.
Please send 5 pages of poetry to 'firstname.lastname@example.org by April 17th, 2011.
