Call for Visual Art Submissions – Due 4.19.14

Call for Visual Art Submissions – Due 4.19.14

We are delighted to be hosting a reading by poet Eve Jones on May 12, 2014, and we would like to do something fantastic to mark the occasion:

We are asking for visual art submissions in response to Eve’s work. There are four poems posted on her website and linked to this post. Why don’t you stroll over there and take a moment to read these vivid, image-rich poems? If you’re moved to do it, create a visual response to one (two, three, four?) of them, and submit your work digitally to sarahkuntzjones at gmail dot com by 11:59 PM on Saturday, April 19. On the 20th, these images will be shared with the writing community (their own call for submissions will be posted shortly), and they’ll respond to your work. In culmination of this project, work will be shown and read at the event on May 12, 2014, at the Mud House, 2101 Cherokee Street.

To sum up:

  • Respond to one of the poems (in this link) in a visual piece
  • Digitally submit your work via e-mail (sarahkuntzjones at gmail dot com)
  • Deadline: April 19, 11:59 PM
  • Reading/viewing event on May 12, 7-9 PM


Coming Soon!

Prose|Poem is a 3-part event showcasing St. Louis’s literary talent by featuring a prose writer and a poet.

Each occurrence will go something like this:

1: The poet and writer interact in a series of brief readings.
2: The poet and writer read from each other’s work.
3: The audience participates in a creative contest, such as a 25-word story contest, Mad Libs, trivia game… Something along those lines.

In short, this will be a good time.

Upcoming events at Stone Spiral Coffee and Curios:

Tuesday, 4/29, 7-9 PM – Readers: TBA
Tuesday, 5/20, 7-9 PM – Readers: TBA
