The Stove is collaborating with WagTongues for a 3-day celebration of light, writing and the spoken word at the end of November, culminating on St Andrew’s Day (Monday, November 30). This is the day of the Dumfries Christmas Lights Switch-On.
As part of the evening’s events, there will be a series of light and sound installations in some of the town’s dark closes. This is a call for submissions for writing which will form the sound element of the installations.
The theme is Light and the Senses. The submission can take any form – prose, poetry, dialogue, script, life writing etc. Submissions can be up to a maximum of 250 words, or 25 lines of poetry.
Writers of the selected pieces will be invited to record their submissions at the Stove, and the final soundtrack will be played as part of the dark closes installations. If you’re not happy recording your own voice we are able to provide someone to read for you!
Please send your submission in a single Word document, which also contains your name and full contact details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for submissions is Friday, 30 October, and selections will be made on Monday, 2 November.
