The Grit Uplifted Creative Writing Group, in partnership with the London InterCommunity Health Centre and the London Homelessness Outreach Network and with the generous contributions of the London Community Foundation as well as private donors from the community, is publishing a second issue of the Grit Uplifted Creative Writing & Arts Magazine featuring the work of people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or have experienced homelessness.
Once again, we are looking for creative writing and visual art submissions to include in the 20-page publication due out this fall, and they must meet the following criteria:
-> Writing pieces can be of any genre, must be less than 10 pages typed* or no more than one page legibly handwritten, and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off in person to Kelly Bradley at the London InterCommunity Health Centre at 659 Dundas Street, London.
* If a submission is longer than one to two pages typed, please be aware that only the first page of the piece will be included in the magazine due to space restrictions, but a link to the piece, published in its entirety on our website, will be provided in the magazine.
-> Art pieces (photographs, sketches, paintings etc.) must be submitted in electronic form and can be emailed to email@example.com.
Alternative arrangements can be made, if necessary, in order for us to obtain a copy of the artwork by contacting Kelly Bradley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All submissions must include a title, the writer/artist’s name and the name that he/she wants the submission to be published under, a brief biographical statement about him/herself and a photograph of him/herself (if available) to be published with the work in the magazine, as well as contact information, if applicable, for use by the organizers of the publication only.
**All writers and artists are required to read and agree to the terms and conditions of publication outlined in the consent form provided below.
