CALL OUT FOR CREATIVE EXTRACTS
Feminisms in Public and Bad Language present: An Evening with MMU Writers
International Anthony Burgess Foundation
Tuesday 13 June 2017 at 6:30pm.
MMU collective Feminisms in Public have teamed up with Saboteur Award-winning literature organisation Bad Language to present an evening that takes an alternative look at writing talent from across the university – a unique insight into the creative work taking place as part of and alongside world-leading research.
We are looking for researchers and students at MMU to read pieces that creatively respond to the theme of gender and sexuality at this event: if you are interested in performing, please email a short prose or poetry extract of no more than 200 words related to this theme as a Word document attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Tuesday 23 May. The work must ultimately correspond to a piece that you can present within a six-minute time-slot at the event.
We are working on a blind submissions basis – so can we ask that you please refrain from including any personal information on the Word document. Instead, please put the title of the extract both in the Word document and in the body of your email.
We will be in touch to confirm our final selection of performers on Tuesday 30 May. In the meantime, please keep the evening of Tuesday 13 June free. If you have any questions or concerns, please email email@example.com.
We look forward to hearing from you,
The Feminisms in Public Team
