READY, ABLE: a mobile literary project


Deadline:
Thu Mar 01, 2012 23:59

You are encouraged to submit creative writing / experimental texts to be included in an online exhibition that valeveil is developing, titled READY, ABLE which intends to archive and disseminate flash fiction, sudden fiction, short shorts, very shorts, prose poems, proems and mini-memes to be ideally accessed from one's mobile device (e.g. smartphone, iPad).

The READY, ABLE project is designed to compliment the reader’s active lifestyle—one that is not always lived from the confines of one’s abode. It aspires to be a poetic archive and investigation into the differences between words as expressions, representations and / or signifiers using a combination of three modes: static text, moving image and sound.

Aside: This project is new for 2012! valeveil will soon have contributions online so you can see how text submissions will, more or less, appear via your mobile device.

Another project surfacing is IN ITS OWN RIGHT, an online archive and ongoing research project collecting 21st century contemporary literature, text-based art and text-inspired design, classified as such due to the presence of divisive poetics or flyting (i.e. contention, battling through words or freestyle expressions of extravagant wit, usually conducted in spoken or written verse) as a present factor. 21st century flyting contributions are encouraged to take on multiple shapes and forms such as fiction, essay, interview, poetry, creative non-fiction, experimental writing, art, design or craft.
