Soanyway – special ‘avant garde’ edition – call for submissions
The latest Soanyway, Issue 13, ‘Before or Since’, online now at http://www.soanyway.org.uk/beforeorsince.htm, is a special edition featuring extracts from Richard Kostelanetz’s Dictionary of the Avant-Gardes, together with a newly commissioned interview between Kostelanetz and Michael Butterworth. Working respectively in the USA and the UK, Kostelanetz and Butterworth have been important figures in the literary avant-garde since the 1960’s, at the forefront of crossovers between experimental literature and conceptual art.
Avant-garde is a term that, although disowned and devalued now by some, Kostelanetz, retains faith in and is determined to hold on to.
We intend to expand Issue 13 and so now invite artists and writers to submit work for inclusion that responds to the idea of the avant-garde, or to any of Kostelanetz’s Dictionary entries, or to any of the ideas and publications discussed in his interview. These can be in any medium and format, and should be sent to as soon as possible to email@example.com
