Description

Dwell Time Issue 2 Open Call

What: Dwell time: The time a train spends at a scheduled stop without moving. Typically, this time is spent boarding or alighting passengers, but it may also be spent waiting for traffic ahead to clear, or idling time in order to get back on schedule.

Dwell Time is an arts publication reflecting on mental wellbeing produced in collaboration with Penistone Line Partnership. We are seeking drawings, illustrations, poetry and stories about real life, raw feelings and survival stories; more about the journeys more than the destinations.

Where: The publication will be distributed on the Penistone Line trains travelling from Huddersfield to Sheffield. The publication is for a general audience (everybody) to pick up and read and therefore we ask that contributors are mindful of content being appropriate for all ages. All contributions will be published on the Dwell Time blog so if you have something that may not be suitable for a general audience but would like it published on the blog, please do send it us.

When: Issue 2 will be launched in Spring 2020 and all contributions will be added to the blog as they arrive.

Criteria and selection process: Images should be high resolution (300 dpi ideally) and can be full colour or greyscale. Text submissions should be up to a maximum of 750 words as a guideline and sent in an editable format. If your text requires specific formatting/alignment please indicate this in your submission.

Co-curators Alice Bradshaw, Vanessa Haley and Lenny Szrama will select contributions for printing in the publication. Once the deadline has passed and we have reviewed all the submissions, we will make a selection and inform all contributors whether or not your work has been selected for the first issue.

To submit: Email: avavprojects@yahoo.co.uk with high resolution images or text in editable format. Please include what name/pseudonym you wish to use or whether you would like your contribution to be anonymous. If you would like a link to your website or blog please also include this.

Deadline: 31 December 2019.
