Looking Back: For National Poetry Day

In preparation for National Poetry Day (2nd October) Long Exposure is drawing on the theme of 'remember', requesting submissions of new work in response to photographs or images which allow the viewer to shift from the present into another space or time. We feel strongly that there is a depth and variety to images, especially those of our past, which is able to bring something unique to light. We are invested in the value of poetry and believe in its capacity to make concrete the…

Harnees Racing ( Poem )

Harness Racing ( Poem )

Horses pull a two wheeled cart

If it breaks you will depart

Place a bet before it starts

Good wager wins if played smart

Riders ready at the gate

Fans no longer have to wait

Athlete sport with high speed

Is a skill you surely need

At times a horse can fall down

Sad to see that come around

Last turn has crowd in a roar

We wait to hear close end score

If your looking to explore

Postcard Crafting - Looking for Tips!

Aside from zine production, I am experimenting with other forms of art, including snail mail art.

I produced stationary designs and envelopes, but I am now trying to craft postcards. 

I was wondering if anyone reading this has any tips and suggestions on how to make postcards. Have you made them before? Are you still making them now? Is there a standard size for postcards? What should appear on the back?

Any help would be appreciated.

Work In Progress (zine review)

Work in Progress is a zine by Gemma Flack (www.gemmaflack.com), a Sydney based zinester and visual artist.

This zine touches on the writers' experiences and philosophies on body image, feminism, and the existence of alien life.

The writing is fresh and honest, accompanied by neat, cute illustrations. I really loved it, and my only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. But for $3AUD, still good value.

Three Poems by James Nixon.

James Nixon's poetry taps into the relationship between textual and visual art by supplying a narrative, a structure through which we can begin to understand the painting as well as to view it. Each featured poem draws on the creative potential available when drawing together the latent symbols, contexts and ideas which emerge from the visual.
