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

Creative reuse is the process of taking used or recyclable materials and turning them into works of art, home decoration or other useful objects. At UpCycle, we rethink our notion of waste, collecting cast-offs from our community to serve as creative art materials. We collect, organize and prep items for use in a variety of creative capacities.

Visit our reuse shop for all of your creative needs! Our inventory is affordable, dynamic and always changing. Materials memberships are available on a daily (fill a bag for a flat fee) or annual basis (unlimited access to our materials for a period of one year).

Stop in to see what’s in store for you today.
