  • Quiet Lightning @ The Emerald Tablet

    Quiet Lightning is accepting submissions—of all kinds of writing—for our show on Monday, December 4th 2014, a literary mixtape @ The Emerald Tablet! This will be a first look for our first full gallery exhibition, featuring 10 sparkle + blink artists, which opens at The Emerald Tablet the following night. Curators TBA soon.

    The deadline for submissions is the end of Wednesday, Nov. 19th.

    The only guidelines are:

    1. Send us any kind of writing you've got. Any kind. Make up new kinds and send them to us.
    2. We rarely feature work that requires more than 8 minutes of reading time (this varies of course but let's say 1,500 words).
    3. By submitting, you commit to be present for the date: Thursday Dec 4, 2014.
    4. Do not put your name anywhere -- neither in the submission itself nor in the subject of your submission.

    Please note:

    • We publish the accepted submissions in sparkle + blink every month. It's OK to submit previously published writings, but please let us know where they were published so we can give proper attribution. The first 100 people to the show will receive a free copy of this special edition of our book.
    • You may submit audio, but all submissions must include full text.
    Don't hesitate to contact us for any reason: evan@quietlightning.org.
