Submissions for Time & Tide close on Friday. We’ve been going on about this for a week or so, and are getting tired of the sound of our own voices, so we aren’t going to remind you (not here, anyway) again. Get your oar in the water and start paddling.
Historical, marine and riverine (is that a word?) theme, with strong female characters.
Stories and poems, ESPECIALLY stories, we’ve had a lot of poetry in: 2000 word limit, original, unpublished and in English, BSL, Portuguese, Scots Gaelic, Doric, or Welsh – with an English version for anything not in English.
Songs to theme in any language, send us a translation though, 5 min maximum, Original or Traditional – nothing that is someone else’s copyright. You, or someone you’ve organised to do it, needs to be able to perform at one of the venues: Aberdeen, Glasgow, Maryport, Holyhead, Greenwich, Hastings, Lisbon and possibly Brighton.
To get you in the mood here’s video of Michelle Penn reading Ian Grosz’s poem Autumn Noon, from last year’s festival, Noon; performed at Brockley Max Festival at Brockley Brewery.
