Award-winning Standing Rock Sioux poet Tiffany Midge is soliciting poetry and artwork protesting DAPL for publication in broadsides for Broadside Press.
The full call is below:
Broadsided Special Features: Responses: Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) Protests at Standing Rock, 2016
At Broadsided Press, we believe that art and literature inspire and demonstrate the vitality and depth of our connection with the world. Art operates beyond the news cycle, connects surface information to deeper truths, and honors and what it attends.
We had to speak out—we had to make a space for you to speak out as artists and writers—on the continuing resistance at Standing Rock to the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Send us poems, short-shorts, and artwork in response to Standing Rock. Full guidelines for length etc are available on our website.
With the help of guest editor Tiffany Midge, we will bring your work into broadsides for people to consider and share. Each broadside will feature the work of one visual artist and one literary artist, the combinations thereof selected and designed by the editors.
Submissions by those involved with the action (you are free to define what this means) are free.
DEADLINE: January 10, 2017
PUBLICATION: On or around February 1, 2017
