Dialecty

Website: https://www.bookworks.org.uk/node/1923

Dialecty is a new project conceived by writer Maria Fusco, and developed with The Common Guild, considering the embodiment and uses of vernacular forms of speaking and writing, exploring how dialect words, syntax and language question traditional orthodoxies of critical writing in creative form. The Common Guild together with Book Works, as part of Co-series, are offering four new commissions selected from open submission and two invited commissions. These sole-authored publications will be aligned with the main themes of Fusco’s project Dialecty: we are interested in proposals that are written in dialect, doggerel, intra-lingual and vernacular, or in proposals that reflect on these subject areas. All forms: critical, cross-genre, experimental, new narrative etc. are welcome. Commissions will be selected by Maria Fusco, with Book Works and The Common Guild, with a fee of £250 plus 50 copies of the book payable to selected artists/writers.
