Writers & poets living or working in Lowell may submit one poem or flash fiction piece that speaks to the Shelter theme.
Shelter can be defined in many ways – a safe warm place, the company of friends, or family; shelter may be found in music, books, imagination, nature, money, protection, meditation and exertion. What is the essence of shelter; what images communicate shelter and its importance to human survival, worth and dignity? People, places, street scenes, home scenes… Are city streets sheltering? Are some places more or less sheltering? What is the impact of loss of shelter in our communities?
Literary works will be selected by the exhibit curators as companion elements to artwork being donated for the show, with 100% of proceeds going to the Lowell Transitional Living Center. Those interested in submitting art for the exhibit can find the Call for Artists on the ALL website at http://www.artsleagueoflowell.org/gallery/future/
Deadline for poetry and flash fiction submissions: January 15, 2021
