For our latest submissions call we want you to embrace the theme ‘message in a bottle’ – you might take this literally and share a big idea that is contained in something small or opt for a more lateral approach and interpret this through the rediscovery of another artform – perhaps the sea shanty. You might consider the notion of journeys and whether it is better to land somewhere new or return to a safe harbour. Whatever your approach, we’re looking for art – be it literary, graphic, film or music – that shows us the world from a different perspective.
To help inspire you, we spoke to author Beatrice Parvin whose debut novel was inspired and informed by English folk songs, which as she explains “are beautifully sparse and tell a huge amount in one line.”
