We are gathering stories that typify the experiences of post-graduate artists during the Great Recession, and we invite you to participate in this project.
These stories will be used in two ways:
1) They will be drawn from in the writing of a one act play.
2) They will be compiled as memoirs that will eventually be submitted for publication.
We encourage you to choose a theme or through-line and to write about that. Possible themes include but are not limited to:
auditions / living in Hollywood / feelings of isolation / job interviews / day jobs vs. artistic work / wanderlust / transportation issues / community / people's responses to your work / current artistic endeavors
You may submit 1-3 pieces, but please keep the total length of your submissions to a maximum of 7 pages.
Also, please include your permission allowing us to make any necessary edits, while preserving the integrity of your work.
The Submission Deadline is 15 August, 2010. Please submit your work via email with an attachment at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for partnering with us; we look forward to receiving your submissions!
