ode to studios: south
PITCH YOUR STORY BY JULY 01, 2021
We are seeking contributors for CreatedHere Magazine Issue 18: Ode to Studios, launching December 2021.
From the rolling tides of Fundy to the bustling historic splendour of Saint John, to an abundance of tight-knit, water-laced communities, South NB is an artistic adventurer’s dream. What artist hasn’t felt their creativity surge after a getaway to this region? The artists who live there are immersed in this wellspring of inspiration, and it shows.
Ode to Studios is our annual winter theme. This year we focus in on artist studios in South NB (for our purposes, that means preference will be given to artists in Saint John, St. Andrew’s, St. Stephen, Sussex, Fundy Park and surrounding areas).
We are seeking:
- photographic tours of cozy artist studios and first-hand accounts of the routines, rituals and habits that guide studio practice
- artwork and photography that explores winter or the embrace of a seasonal lifestyle
- musings and poetry about the South NB landscape (especially the winter landscape) and the artist’s place within it
- pairings of visual artists with poets/writers/songwriters, responding to one another’s work
This issue is less about long-form articles and more about largescale, calming imagery with short-form, poetic writing and artist quotes. Think coffee table book. For ideas, get inspired by the 2020 version here and the 2019 version here.
Only complete submissions will be considered. Please click HERE for the submission checklist and full details on how we select featured artists.
With thanks to the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation and the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design for funding our contributor fees, we offer payment of $50-$250 depending on contribution size.
