<nettime-ann> Call for Participants: Emerging Writers Fair & Book Launch


We want to launch your book. On a catapult. We're not kidding.

If you have recently finished writing a book, or have published your first book in the past year (or just feel like taking out some aggression on a publication of your choice), we invite you to celebrate by launching your work into
space--or at least halfway down the block.

In addition to the catapult book launch, we're hosting a literary science fair so that you can receive proper admiration for your writing. Now is your chance
to explain to the world what's so special about your fiction, poetry,
non-fiction...by means of a diorama, poster, or tri-fold board. Baking soda
volcanoes are welcome, colorful graphs encouraged.

Because space is limited, if you'd like to participate in the literary science fair, we'll need a short proposal for any table-top display, due by 15 June.
(We'll squeeze in as many as we can, but space will be available on a
first-come, first-served basis.) Note that we have near-unlimited room for wall poster displays. Out-of-town writers are encouraged to submit posters, rather
than moping at home all night on Facebook.
