We are currently accepting submissions for the following:

 

• a literary mixtape to be performed live one time only, on Monday, September 7th—Labor Day—in Samuel P. Taylor State Park!

This will be a mid-afternoon show, beginning at around 3:30pm, overlooking the Lagunitas River—we have reserved the Group Site MG1 and two adjacent sites, and are set up to accommodate up to 29 campers for the evening; if you’re able to take off work on Tuesday, Sept. 8, you should probably set those wheels in motion!

We’ll meet at 2/2:30 on the 7th, hang out, do the show, and then the people who are camping will stay and make a fire, spend the night together, and wake up for an optional hike. We’ll have more info on the camping/hiking aspect of things soon enough; for now, send us some writing! 

For more information and to submit—by August 17—click here.

    This will be a mid-afternoon show, beginning at around 3:30pm, overlooking the Lagunitas River—we have reserved the Group Site MG1** and two adjacent sites, and are set up to accommodate up to 29 campers for the evening; if you're able to take off work on Tuesday, Sept. 8, you should probably set those wheels in motion! We'll meet at 2/2:30 on the 7th, hang out, do the show, and then the people who are camping will stay and make a fire, spend the night together, and wake up for an optional hike. We'll have more info on the camping/hiking aspect of things soon enough; for now, send us some writing!

    GUIDELINES:

    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). You may submit more than one attachment, but the word count of your entire submission should not exceed 1,500.
    3. By submitting, you commit to be present for the date: Monday Sept. 7, 2015.
    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.
    • You may submit audio, but all submissions must include full text.
