"Languages of Colour" - Call for submissions: poetry, prose, non-fiction and art work

Dear all, I am preparing a small publication related to my doctoral research. If you are a writer, artist, art historian or scientist and feeling creative have a look at this:

The Frogmore Press is inviting submissions on the subject of COLOUR in art, poetry, literature and science. Successful submissions will be published in a volume with the working title Languages of Colour, with publication provisionally scheduled for autumn/winter 2011. The editor will be Alexandra Loske.

The Frogmore Press predominantly publishes poetry, short pieces of prose and literary reviews. This special volume intends to branch out into non-fiction, art history and the sciences. The volume will be illustrated.

We are inviting poems, very short pieces of prose, short reviews of classic works on colour, particular artists or works of art. Submissions may include images and may have been previously published, subject to copyright clearance. Translations are also welcome.

Maximum word length per submission: 1500; the shorter, the better.
We are particular interested in visual artists submitting graphic work to illustrate the volume.

For more information please email: Alexbythesea@hotmail.com

Deadline for submissions: 31 July 2011

Submissions should be sent with a s.a.e. to:
