Floating Library: Call for submissions

When 9 May 2014

Dear Artist/Thinker/Poet/Writer,

Do you have a writing project, artist book, unpublished novel, article, manifesto, dissertation, or poem that you would like to share with the world by being included amongst the reading materials on the Floating Library? The Floating Library is interested in featuring unpublished/little known artists’ writings and book projects. Although we do not want to limit your creativity, we are specifically interested in content related to social movements, public space, feminism, queer theory, environmental health, creative activism, DIY culture, poetry, guerrilla gardening, holistic health, geography, children literature, pirates, post-colonialism and diaspora (yes, that is quite a wide range!). Please understand that the accepted work will not be returned as it will be donated to school at the end of the project in order for the generosity of the project to continue on. In no way will we make a profit off of your work and your intellectual property rights will be respected. Your participation will be acknowledged and honored on our website and other social media outlets.

Yours Truly,

The Floating Library Crew
