We’re looking for essays, fiction, and hybrid work that takes place in Seattle, particularly where the setting is a major aspect of the story. Though previously unpublished work is preferred, we will still consider work that has been previously published. Just let us know.
The Furnace takes place at Hollow Earth Radio, an independent radio station with a performance space. This is an opportunity to present your work in innovative ways. In what ways can the actual performance of the work enhance the written work? In the past authors have worked with musicians, vocalists, or created soundscapes that bring the piece to life. This is more than playing a song behind you as you read. It’s an opportunity to engage and tell a story, and as audience members, we can’t wait to listen.
We need a few things from you:
- A cover letter that explains ideas for performance and why The Furnace seems like the right venue for this piece.
- Please attach your story as a word document. Make sure your name, and word count appear at the top.
- Please include the genre and setting of the work in the subject line of your email. For example, “Fiction, Othello” or “Essay, Aurora Avenue” or “Hybrid, Cascade”.
Word count: between 4 and 6,000 words

DEADLINE: June 1, 2015
