If you are not familiar w/ Calamari Archive + we are not familiar w/ your work, it would behoove you to first try an excerpt or short piece for Sleepingfish (the sort of farm team for Calamari). We are particularly interested in work that builds on the archival narrative of Calamari/Sleepingfish + that challenges + subverts the usual notions of author vs. book, fiction vs. poetry ± text vs. image—particularly collaborative, anonymous ± self-authored art/text hybrids. We are not interested in straight up story-telling ± lined poetry. Art is our primary concern.
Please familiarize yourself w/ Sleepingfish ± the Calamari Archive catalog + archival manifesto before submitting, not just to see if your work is a good fit, but that we are a good fit for you + your work.
Please send submission by email using prevailing notions of courtesy + common sense. We typically only respond in the affirmative, so if you haven't heard back after ~2 months, assume it's not a good fit.
