For the last three years, I have also put together the annual Art & Words Show in Fort Worth, Texas, in which I coordinate an art show involving up to 12 (mostly genre) writers and 12 visual artists in a collaborative inspirational project. The show was featured in Poets & Writers in early 2014. Each year, the show gets better and better as I learn more about how best to put it together. Currently I’m working on growing the project and finding ways to expand its reach so that the hard work of the participants will be recognized by a larger audience. Several of the works written for the show have gone on to be published; for a list of those works, visit the Art & Words page on Art on the Boulevard’s website. For more info about submissions, which are open each March, click here.
Who can nominate for the Campbell? WorldCon attendees of 2014, 2015, or 2016. So if you attended LonCon in 2014, are attending Sasquan in 2015, or are signed up to attend MidAmericaCon II in Kansas City in 2016, you have the ability to nominate for the Campbell.
Who else is eligible? Some of my favorite writers are also eligible: Lara Elena Donnelly (read “Chopin’s Eyes”), Carmen Maria Machado (go for “The Husband Stitch” or “Inventory”), Sam J. Miller (try “Kenneth: A User’s Manual”), Bogi Takács (“This Shall Serve as a Demarcation”). A few Art & Words participants are eligible, too: Tony Pisculli and Alisa Alering. Other names can be found here: http://www.writertopia.com/awards/campbell (and oh man, I just looked over the list and there are so many awesome people on it there’s no way I can list all my favorites here).
