We recently arranged a collaboration beween a poet – Ben Macnair – and 6 illustrators. Each artist was allocated one of 6 poems to illustrate, with no knowledge of the other poems. The results can be seen here: part 1 | Part 2
We are now looking forward to poetry collaboration number 2 and are in search of 6 illustrators to create their visual interpretations of 6 poems by the wonderful word smith Ju Shardlow… westywrote.blogspot.com. The poems and their accompanying illustrations will be displayed proudly on the Creature blog.
If this sounds good to you then get involved by simply tweeting @Creaturemag or leave a comment below. Submissions will be open till Wednesday 2nd March to give everyone a chance to apply. Then, with the help of Ju, we will pick 6 illustrators to collaborate on the project.
We will endeavour to contact everyone who expresses interest but it can get quite busy so please bare with us.
Why get involved?
One of the previous collaborators, Gilly Rochester, wrote this great review about her involvement in the first collaboration: http://gillyrochesterdesign.blogspot.com/2011/02/poetry-collaboration-for-creaturemag.html
