THE AWE IS BACK!
After the success of the Autumn Writers’ Exhibition last year we’re making it a tradition and bringing it back. Last year we had more than 100 writers displaying their work for free and taking part in events and impromptu readings and music. Come along and enjoy the fun, which will end with fireworks and a main events week over Halloween.
This year the exhibition will be on two parcels of land next to the Written Word and INKsters areas on opposite corners of Cookie Island, joined by events in the Town Center. There’s also plenty to see on this island dedicated to writers and creative people.
THINKING OF EXHIBITING?
The exhibition shows off the work of writers active on SL, in tents or huts (see pictures on the website or come and see the ones on show). The tents are slightly bigger but are not editable. The inside texture of the hut may be edited, and the shelf can be removed.
There is no charge for a hut or tent, which once booked, can be occupied for the duration of the exhibition. The condition is that your display must be set up in time for the beginning of the exhibition (huts & tents will be available around a week before this). Displays must relate to original writing created by the occupier (or occupiers, if you’re doing one jointly). Writing can include poetry, prose, fiction, non-fiction, scriptwriting or songwriting, and can be supplemented by other original artwork … it’s all down to your imagination and creativity!
The exhibition is for original writers in all forms, and not for people wanting to sell services to writers. Writers can offer their work for sale.
If you’re interested in reserving a hut or tent, you’ll need pass a Second Life notecard to Jilly Kidd with your name and what you intend to display. Put AWE in the name so she can find it easily. Or go to the Written Word website to fill in a form and we’ll get back to you.
