Book 2.0 looks forward to providing a forum for promoting and sharing the most innovative and imaginative practices in the teaching of writing, illustration, book design and production.
Our next issue will focus on combinations of words and sounds of all kinds: works from the past and the present which bring together or blend into new and innovative forms, sounds and texts; musical works inspired by poems, novels or even single words and phrases; performances; poems, narrative fictions and other texts inspired by sounds and music, or vice versa.
Contributions might include articles, interviews, reviews, creative work with commentaries and examples of works in progress.
Topics for articles might include (but are not limited to):
- Traditional, modern and contemporary opera;
- Experimental and avant-garde music theatre;
- Popular song and mainstream musical theatre;
- Art song – traditional and contemporary;
- Performances combining sound and text;
- Film and video art combining sound and words;
- Performances involving multiple languages;
- Traditions of Indigenous song and support for modern Indigenous composers, writers and performers;
- Contributors’ own creative work – especially examples and commentaries on work in progress;
- Reviews of new collaborations, re-publications of significant past pieces;
- In all education sectors, works combining words and sounds are currently being created and/or used in teaching.
Contributions are invited from scholars, practitioners – authors, poets, artists, composers, songwriters – and others. We would particularly like to receive contributions from early-career researchers and creative practitioners.
If you are interested in contributing, please email joint editors Dr Mick Gowar (email@example.com) and Dr Amber Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a 300-word abstract, synopsis and a short (approx. 100-word) biography by 24 March 2024.
