As we have for the past few years, we’ll be accepting physical visual art (paintings, sculpture, mixed media, et al) submissions in Art 201. We recommend that submissions of visual art be made during this time period (with the exception of digital art, which can be submitted at any time) because it gives editors the chance to engage with the work in a 3-dimensional space, and because it’s nice to have your artwork photographed under controlled lighting and blank backgrounds.
This year, our art collection schedule is as follows:
After your art has been photographed, you’ll receive a phone call or email letting you know that it’s ready to be taken home. All art submissions must be picked up by 6PM on December 20th; if they are not taken by the artist, they’ll be in the Bridge Office in Tillinghast Hall through winter break and may be picked up at the start of the spring semester.
It is with a somewhat heavy heart that we come to the conclusion of the recordings we made in the spring. Please bear in mind, however, that given the will and the cooperation from contributors (like you!), we would like to continue making audio posts featuring work within the Bridge. This also gives us the opportunity to say, keep an eye out! Things are moving in the world of the Bridge, and you can keep up to date on them both here and on our Facebook page.
We wrap up the spring 2017 recordings with, again, Caitlin Westgate. She reads “mourning news,” which can be found both on page 36 of volume 14 and below the cut.
Belatedly, because WordPress was having issues uploading audio files, is our third reading. This comes from D.S. Hooker, “Bridge” volume 13 editor as well as volume 14 contributor. His piece, “Grandpa Jim,” took home the Bridge Honors in volume 14 for best overall piece. It is located on page 24 of volume 14, and can be read below the cut.
At this time, we are putting together the guts of Volume 14. This means compiling contributor notes, editor bios, a letter from us, an artist profile, and, of course, editing the work that will be included in the new volume.
Look forward to emailed galley copies of literature submissions in the next two weeks. Those of you who have submitted in December, thank you–you’ll hear information about whether or not your work is included in the journal soon. Stay tuned.
