WRITERS AND POETS

 

CALL TO ARTISTS AND WRITERS: Contributors for digital publication Movable Type, 1455 Literary Arts, USA
DEADLINE: rolling

1455 is always looking for fresh, original contributions to its bi-monthly digital publication Movable Type. Originally conceived as a magazine "by writers for writers" 1455 has greatly expanded its scope and seeks to celebrate storytelling of all types. In 2022, the goal is a more diverse, inclusive multimedia experience; as such, we welcome poetry, flash fiction, essays, memoir, illustrations, visual art, comics, and recorded video of music or dance (interviews and artist statements are also considered). Having already showcased best-selling authors, academics, and creatives, the goal is to further establish Movable Type as a provocative forum for meaningful engagement with art.

Each issue of Movable Type revolves around a theme, and 1455 welcomes submissions year-round. Each issue will be accompanied by a live (virtual) reading, featuring the contributors. Please see the themes for 2022 and send your original work (poetry, fiction, essays, memoir, visual art, photography, etc.) to info@1455litarts.org
