Call for poetry, short-stories, photography and art work for Galway Artistic Atlas


Poets, artists, photographers and short-story writers, with work based in or inspired by Galway, have less than one month left to submit work to The Artistic Atlas of Galway.

The Atlas which aims to highlight the artistic capital of the City and County, the people that live in it and those that pass through it. The work submitted will be compiled into chapters based on certain themes of Galway. Conceptual maps will be drawn up, influenced by the work in each chapter. These will be included in the Atlas alongside more traditional maps, allowing people to visit places and read the landscape in different ways.

Liam Duffy the organiser has been happy with the response so far: “the idea has been met with intrigue and enthusiasm, and I've been delighted to receive work from professional artists and writers and people who've just happened to catch a special glimpse of Galway with their camera or pen”.

The deadline is July 31, submissions should be sent to GalwayAtlas@gmail.com and more details can be found on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=224818917528218 

The Galway Artistic Atlas is very grateful for funding from Spunout.ie
