Call for submissions: Words & Music (Fiction and Poetry only)
This issue presents writing by musicians and writers who cross mediums to collaborate and experiment in the spaces between words and music, including Hilary Bell and Phillip Johnston. It includes curator John Murphy’s reflections on archiving Peter Sculthorpe’s house and Joseph Tolz writes of the experience of researching musical recollections from the Holocaust, and presents some of these memories from survivors. Michael Hooper compares Elliott Gyger’s operatic adaptation of David Malouf’s Fly Away Peter and Hannah Fink interviews Marie Bashir on her love of music. There is also the usual cornucopia of stories, poems and reviews.
Southerly is looking for a small number of stories and poems only on the theme of ‘Words and Music’ for its next issue.
Please do not submit essays, academic work, memoir, or interviews. They will not be considered for this issue.
Due date: July 14th 2016.
Please submit via our online portal here and use the correct ‘Words & Music’ category.
