Mixed Tape and CanLit Collections

mixedtapesThese sister projects invite writers to contemplate artistic works in media other than writing which have helped to inspire or feed their novels and/or collections of short stories and poetry.

In Mixed Tape, writers will write a 2-300 word introduction and then present four to six songs with accompanying videos from YouTube or Vimeo. Here’s an example.

CanLit Collections asks writers to bring together a ‘collection’ of human-made artifacts – paintings, cultural objects, antiques, photographs, fabric art, carvings, installations, fashion objects, etc., that have inspired a particular work. They’ll write an introduction, then provide a list of four to six items with accompanying images.

If you’re a writer of published works, and you’re interested, send me a note introducing yourself, your work, and a few examples of the artifacts or songs that you would include.
