Foun10 of Uth
Calling all Gabriola Island Youth!!!
Are you a writer between 13 and 19 years of age? Then here’s a
chance to get creative! Poetry Gabriola is commissioning six 'Poems
of Place' and we want your submissions. Foun10 of Uth encourages
youth to write, speak out, and experiment. Poems will be developed
with experienced mentors, have a focus on text, and be performed live.
Youth artists will receive a commission fee.
Applicants can submit work in any format that uses text as a central
element. Each submission will be juried and matched with a mentor, who
will help develop the work over the month of August. Final pieces will
be "Poems Of Place" in relation to Gabriola Island, and will be
included in the upcoming QR Anthology project.
How to participate:
If you are a youth artist, send us a sample of your current work and a
letter of interest. Poetry, songs, blog posts, serious or comical,
designed for the page or for live performance; it can involve media,
sound, installation art...use your imagination! If you are not sure if
it fits, send it anyway and we will respond. Focus goes to Gabriola
youth but Nanaimo youth may also apply.
Deadline for submissions: July 27
Notification: August 3
Final Event: August 28.
