call for submissions (artists who write, writers who art)


I am working on a project that is half for a Chicago Calling event, "Two Way Tarot Mirror", and half for an idea I've been tossing around of creating a tarot deck (or book of some sort) for dancing girl release (initially it was just going to me something I did, but I think it will be much more fun if it involves you (yes, YOU over there). Right now, I'm thinking we'll just stick to the major arcana, but possibly may expand that if this goes over well. How it works is I need 21 people willing to create a two sided 4 x 6 card using whatever artistic medium they would like. One one side, the image side, it would be more image based (drawing, painting, collage, whatever) based on one of the major arcana cards I will choose for you at random (I plan on just drawing you a card from the deck I have.) The other side would likely be text prose, poetry, knock-knock jokes, instructions, recipes related to your card in some way.) Since I will be reading and sharing them on Oct 2nd, time is of the essence, so I would need them ideally mailed to me by September 25th. For the actual book project I plan on going through the whole deck possibly...but for now I will be assigning cards to the first 21 people who e-mail me wanting to participate so contact me if you are interested in being a part of this. dancinggirlpress (at) yahoo with the subject heading of "tarot project"...
