The deadline for sending us your wonderful sea and history themed short stories and poems (up to 2000 words) and film-poems and songs (up to 5 mins) is only a WEEK away. You have until 23:59 BST (that’s probably high tide somewhere) to deliver your cargo at the quay that is Submittable.Lots more info there.
Ok, that’s not a great metaphor, I’m sure you can do better, but if you don’t send it (weigh anchor, cast off, set sail…) we’ll never know!
Chosen work will be performed by actors/you at one or more of our sites on the shortest day of the year: 21st December. Performances will be live-streamed on Facebook (technology permitting) and published in the Time & Tide anthology (texts only obvs.) for which we will pay royalties (tiny, probably, with lots of contributors, but it’s the principle)
We need warehouses full of stuff for this, as we have seven or eight tidal venues so far…
Scotland: Aberdeen and Glasgow
England: Greenwich, Hastings, Maryport and possibly Brighton.
Cast your work upon the waters…
In the meantime, here’s a video from our recent reprise of last year’s Noon extravaganza performed at Brockley Brewery as part of Brockley Max festival. Michelle Penn reads her poem Precarious.
