Submission Details

What is Ghostland Haunts?

 

Ghostland Haunts is a performative literary series with revolving themes and sensory elements, hosted by creators Ophelia Darkly and Jen Scholten. 

The Theme

We are the wolves and the wanderers, the wasps and the warriors, planting our words like time bombs. The spells are everlasting and you may drink them like fire when in need.

Dear femmes of the world, we call upon your voices to shatter expectations, societal norms, and the patriarchy. There will be NO CENSORSHIP & NO BOUNDARIES, just raw, biting truth. Give us your #metoo stories, your #whyididntreport memoirs, your snake speak poetry, pieces from the altar of your heart.

 

*Note:

This theme aligns with Women's History Month in March. 

Ghostland Haunts: Femme submissions are open to femme identifying friends only at this time.

Please contact us if you have any questions in regard to eligibility at ghostlandhaunts@gmail.com.

The Event

The performance event will take place at Bit House Saloon on Saturday, March 23rd 2019.

The venue requires all performers to be 21+.

 

What is Unique About Ghostland Haunts LLC.?

 

Ghostland Haunts LLC. seeks to fill a void that currently exists in the literary arts realm. As writers and artists, it has been extremely challenging to find literary arts organizations that are consistently devoted to curating specific, themed literary events, that manage to effectively speak to multiple generations of writers. The mission of Ghostland is to provide the outlet and inspiration in order to empower writers in the community to create new works that reflect the times, and to manifest an environment for a diverse audience seeking a thoughtful engagement with like-minded peers.

All writers will be paid for their performances.

 

Each performer will be given 10-15 minutes on stage for their performance piece. We are looking specifically for literary works that fit the theme of Femme and incorporate elements of performance art.

 

Submissions

 

We are open to accepting works in progress, as well as completed works, but suggest that you submit a written proposal illustrating your vision with both written and visual components (video/audio/media) with the subject title “Ghostland Haunts: Femme - Submission - Your Name” to ghostlandhaunts@gmail.com no later than February 15th, 2019. 

*Video submissions are highly encouraged.

 

The venue requires all performers to be 21+.

 

The Selection Process

 

Submissions will be evaluated and performers will be chosen based on the strength of their proposal and how deeply it connects to the theme. Chosen artists will be asked to meet for an interview so that they may ask questions and elaborate on their vision.
