New Leonard Cohen Anthology, Request For Contributions

Post by Stephanie Z » Wed May 01, 2019 11:48 am

A Hull friend has just passed on the following request to me and Jarkko has given me persmission to post:

Wrecking Ball Press are pleased to announce an open call-out to writers to submit short prose pieces (max. 1500 words) and poetry for publication in a special edition anthology in 2019. Focussing on the life and work of poet, novelist, and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, we invite you to submit to us your writing inspired by Leonard Cohen
: what he meant to you, how he inspired you, how he influenced you. Words born in the emotions invoked by Cohen’s writing and music, from short stories and poems to brief autobiographical experiences.

Did you ever meet Leonard Cohen, or see him in concert? Where did he take you with his words and his songs? We would also like to invite any photographers or artists who have original work or images of Leonard Cohen from any point in his career to send submissions, too, with permissions for credited print within the anthology.

Submissions will be shortlisted and selected by poet and comedian Kate Fox, and Wrecking Ball Press editor Shane Rhodes.

Submissions to be sent to: Please title the email with: Leonard Cohen Submissions

I have no connection with Wrecking Ball Press, and know nothing beyond the above (ie is there payment?/royalty?) except that my friend tells me they are well-known in the Hull arts scene as a respected small publisher.
