On November  7th, the Los Angeles Conservancy is curating a Downtown L.A. experience: STROLLING ON 7th STREET 

Wordspace, in conjunction with the Conservancy, is creating a ‘Writers On Seventh’ event:  literary contributions to this event/publication can be based on 7th Street history, architecture, events, personages, culture and current transformations.  

As in previous collaborations between Wordspace and the Conservancy, the parameters for contributions are as follows: 

  • A researched connection to 7th Street Downtown L.A. based on:
        Documents, interviews, visual interpretation, historical characters, events
  • Suggestions:  the L.A. Times, a visit to archives at USC or Central Library, a stroll down the street, The Downtown News.... 
  • Some of our links? Buildings on 7th, Elegance, Protest, Progress, Fashion, Objects/shopping
  • All genres welcome - fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, performance or theatrical writing
  • Experiments are encouraged: collaboration, choral, cross-genre

Because this will be translated to a ‘reading evening’,  the submissions should be under 8 minutes OR contain designated sections that could be read in that time-frame: prose submissions under 3,000 words, 3 poems, or performance works (solo or group) timed to under 8-minutes.   

10 selections will be chosen as part of  Wordspace's first collaborative collection, Writers on Seventh, with approximately 2 writers per genre: fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, personal narrative, drama. Writers can also participate in the public reading on the evening of November 7th.

Wordspace associates and Staff will be reading contributions for selection.
Submissions Due by October 15th, and will be notified by October 25th. 

Contact seventh@wordspace.net for more information or to submit your selection.
