Calling all writers in the greater Amherst/Pioneer Valley region, Luminarium’s “Amherst Storybook Project” is in its final stage.
Using artwork from local artists, the dance company has created 12 fanciful images for a new children’s storybook. Writers are asked to choose an image, and write a poem or short story inspired by the scene. Submissions are free and writers are welcome to submit as many entries as they wish.
Go to: http://www.luminariumdance.org/#!amherst-storybook-project/cup5
to learn more about the project as a whole; view the 12 images, and to submit your writing.
One submission per image will ultimately be chosen to be printed alongside the artwork in the final book, which will debut at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art on Nov. 8. Deadline to submit: Oct. 2 at 5 p.m.
