This call out is for SHORT/FLASH fiction and poetry of no more than 1000 words.
In English, unpublished.
Deadline 23:59, 31 August 2016
The theme is Shortest Day.
Please stick to it, but do not use this as your title! How you choose to interpret shortest day is entirely up to you.
This is the second part of an earlier call out, and this part is to RESPOND to music for which you will be sent a link – (the reason the link is not here is to respect the copyright of the musicians and composers, only people actively seeking to respond to the call out will have access to it.) Contact us to ask for the link
Successful pieces will be performed at the 3rd Solstice Shorts Festival on 21st December 2016 in Greenwich, London. Please tell us which piece of music inspired you, so that we can curate the music and story/poem alongside, or even together.
Successful stories and poems will also be published in an anthology, alongside pieces from last year’s Longest Night event. We pay royalties for publication. (Shared between all contributors, so it will be tiny, but still!)
We already have quite a lot of poetry, so would be particularly interested in stories, but quality is foremost.
When you are ready, submit here.
