Now that the symposium is behind us, it’s time to think about the next project. Here’s a few opportunities that may be of interest.
Does a conference in Sweden or Bristol sound like fun for 2020? Check out the call for papers (closing soon) for two Association of Dress Historians conferences next year.
Air miles are not required for a couple of other writing opportunities. New Lit Salon Press is seeking short stories for with a fashion focus for Dress You Up: A Capsule Collection of Fashionable Fiction for the Stylish Reader – works of fiction that directly address the significance of clothes and accessories, with the object at the story’s core. If you have something in that might fit the brief (no pun intended), closing date is 1 December.
Back in Aotearoa, the Handshake Project is looking to support developing craft writers and craft professionals! Deadline is on Nov 22, you must be a NZ citizen with a B.A.
A further symposium footnote on media synchronicity during the weekend. Elizabeth Kozlowski and Surface Design were mentioned during the AGM; on Sunday’s Standing Room Only, Lynn Freeman interviewed Elizabeth’s SD collaborator, Lisa Sinner about her work.
