Filling Station: Call for Submissions

For the final Issue of 2014, Issue 61, filling Station is looking for collaborative works of Poetry, Fiction, Non Fiction & Visual Art. Acknowledging the innately experimental quality of text produced cooperatively, fS is seeking innovative work both produced through collaboration and on/about collaboration. Submissions might include, for example, work produced through a partnership of two, the collaborative efforts of an entire community, or work produced through specific techniques, like collage, cut-up, erasure and constraint. fS would also like to see manifestos, essays, interviews and articles on – or written through the process of – collaboration, as well as reviews on recent works of collaborative writing and art.

9.
Did prehistoric man have bone-music discos?
Saturday night femur? The funk-fracturing
of tibia and fibula in the caves of mutually
assured destruction, musical marathons
alternating blisters and bliss in the hard minutes
that follow the clinical cosh. The ear-y discharge
of erotic heat always with a potential for disaster.
Vital that the patient keeps the leg elevated
and doesn’t let it dangle, grinding down
the debts, low and slow, with iceflame austerity.

Sad Press: Verity Spott and Megan Alan

Out now.
