I wanted to let you know on behalf of all of us at The Litography Project that our new multimedia storytelling website launched today, and we’re accepting pitches! So check it out and send some ideas our way: www.thelitographyproject.com
Who are we? The Litography Project is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to mapping the past and future of literature in the Bay Area. The project is primarily an online site featuring a map populated with audio and visual stories that capture the innovation and diversity of all literary forms in the Bay Area – and that’s where you come in.
We’re looking for stories that tie literature to something bigger. For example, some of our first stories are:
– A tour of the changing Mission District with past poet laureate Alejandro Murgia.
– Poems of the Occupy protests in Oakland and Berkeley.
– The letters of Adolph Sutro, namesake of many local landmarks
– The story of the last book bindery in San Francisco.
Have an idea? Send us a pitch! We are open to discussing an array of creative approaches to capturing literature thorough audio.
We pay $400 for audio pieces, $150 for written and $150 for visual.
