The Litography Project is an online map of San Francisco, launching in summer 2014, that plots the city’s literary past, present and future.
We are looking for stories that explore literary culture in San Francisco. We are seeking a variety of stories that will be plotted as points on a map with potential photographs and/or images produced by a designer, depending on the story concept and subject.
Some example topics and structures include:
Conversations or short audio tours with authors who live in or have been inspired by San Francisco
Profiles of current literary series or events
Soundscapes of literary places throughout the city
Historical features of specific places or events that shaped San Francisco literature
Pitches should be less than one page in length and include possible interview sources and what you think the piece might sound like (structure, sound, style). Please attach links to any previous work.
If your pitch is accepted, please be prepared to submit a script before any audio. Compensation is $300 fee paid upon submission of the final script and audio files. The Litography Project will create all final mixes. We will need you to provide your actualities, narration and ambient sound along with a rough mix.
You retain all the rights to your work and are free to post or pitch it to other outlets. However we respectfully ask that you wait until it’s been released on The Litography Project website to do so.
We look forward to hearing from you!
We are also seeking other kinds of multimedia content as well – if you are interested in submitting writing, photography or illustrations, please get in contact!
