Calling all doodlers, ponderers, writers, poets and dreamers!
Submit a short story for a chance to be part of an exciting and unique, collaborative public art project in Redcliffe, Bristol.
Following the success of the Bristol Story Trail earlier in the year, get ready for Future Way brought to you by Dream of a Shadow, an online project bridging the gap between reality and fantasy through storytelling.
Working with The Redcliffe Neighbourhood Development Forum (@), Future Way seeks to engage the people of Redcliffe and the wider community of Bristol through a playful and exciting exploration of the area using storytelling.
This is an amazing opportunity for published authors and budding writers in Bristol to collaborate with artists, architects and community groups in a first-of-its-kind, art project which challenges the way we view our city.
Contributors are encouraged to think about how Redcliffe may be used in the future and set tales within this. Because of the nature of the project, the brief is quite specific and submissions must meet the following criteria:
- All entries must be set in the future Redcliffe area (how far is up to you)
- All entries should be in 3-5 sections of 250 words (max) each, forming a trail through the area
- Each section is planned to be tagged to a specific point within Redcliffe, i.e. a wall, lamp post, street, door etc.
The deadline for submissions is Monday 20th April 2015, so there’s plenty of time to get writing.
Please look at the website for the full brief before getting the pens out!
For any queries tweet us @DoaSLiveFiction and be sure to follow to stay up to date!
Happy writing and good luck!
