Drunken Boat Issue 11 is coming January 30th! Featuring folios on sound art, poet laureate Kay Ryan, and the non-fiction compilation “Life in a Time of Contractions”
Happy new year from Drunken Boat, international online journal of the arts. As an independent 501(c)3 non-profit, Drunken Boat publishes innovative works of art and literature on a relatively small budget constituted primarily by grants and support from our readers.
In a time of economic recession and political turmoil, it’s crucial to have magazines like Drunken Boat helping nurture artists and writers. Any small donation you make would be tax-deductible and would go towards helping DB continue to produce issues that feature the best of more traditional forms of representation alongside works of art that could only exist online. Our contributors have gone on to be featured in the Whitney Biennial, be nominated for the National Book Award and be featured at the Tribeca Film Festival, and we depend upon our readers for our survival. Please take a moment to make a small contribution today and keep your eyes open for Drunken Boat#11 and for our first published book, Reetika Vazirani’s posthumous collection of poems Radha Says. available now for pre-order. No amount is too small and everything will go towards the production of the magazine.
Thank you for your support. Have a tremendous 2010.
Two Electronic Writing Graduate Fellowships
at Brown University, Literary Arts Program.
Deadline: December 15, 2009
The two-year position, including full tuition and a stipend, leads to an MFA. Information on how to apply to Brown’s graduate school is linked from the Program’s website
Since 1990, Brown’s Graduate Program in Literary Arts has earned recognition as an international leader in the field of electronic writing. Today, writing digital media is part of the trans-departmental digital arts development at Brown involving Literary Arts, Music, Visual Art, Modern Culture and Media, Computer Science, and other departments. Links have also been forged with the Digital+Media Center at the Rhode Island School of Design. Though the focus is still on writing and thus on the text, students in literary hypermedia take courses offering the additional possibility of working in mixed hypermedia, including computer graphics, animation, electronic music, video, and virtual 3-D environments. A new experimental workshop, ‘Cave Writing,’ has been launched in Brown’s immersive virtual reality environment in the Center Computation and Visualization. Our faculty include Professor Robert Coover, who was the moving force behind these initiatives and, since 2007, Professor John Cayley.
