Poetry Anthology Seeks Submissions from Victims of Bullying

Poetry Anthology Seeks Submissions from Victims of Bullying and Those Struggling with Eating Disorders

Embargoed Until: 6:00 AM on Tue, 25 Mar 2014

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND – March 25, 2014 – N Titi Publishing is looking for contributions for a proposed poetry anthology, Sprung from the Heart, written by young people dealing with bullying or eating disorders.

We aim to publish the anthology in conjunction with the book Soup and Bread by Nōnen Tti later this year, so that the words that spring directly from the hearts of those who feel different or alone and which is so often naturally translated into poems, may supply real examples to support those expressed by the fictional characters of the book.

Our goal is to collect them into an eBook – contributors will get a free copy – and possibly also in print.

We reserve the right to reject submissions and will not accept potentially offensive material, so better not include names of others (or schools) to begin with.

We do not judge quality. You don't have to be a poet to contribute and there is no required format. Just try and keep it to a limit that could fit one page.

You can write and submit your poem under a pseudonym, but we will need a real email address, for reasons of editing.

Additionally, we accept submissions for the front cover. These, if digital, have to be in a high resolution JPEG or PDF.

If hand drawn or painted, it needs to be scanned at 400 DPI – nice and vibrant colours are best.

Keep space for the title and a name and remember that the image has to be clear when scaled down on a website.

The writer/artist gives N Titi Publishing permission for inclusion of their work into this anthology only, but all other rights remain with the writer/artist.

N Titi Publishing cannot afford to pay contributors for their work.

Contributions need to be submitted by 1/5/2014 for poems and by 1/6/2014 for cover art to ntitipublishing@gmail.com or nonentiti@hotmail.co.nz

For more information, please visit www.nonentiti.com or contact us at ntitipublishing@gmail.com

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
