For writers who work with art, and artists who work with writing

Skelf aims to increase its platform for art writing and the Pool is a mailing list for writers or artists who are interested in contributing a text-based work to appear on Skelf.

We are aiming to find out as much as we can about your writing so that we can make the most interesting and relevant pairings between artists and writers. We are interested in hearing from writers or artists exploring language in its widest sense- from poetry to criticism and everything in between.

Please provide us with links to previous work(s) so that we can see examples of how you work, and a few key words or phrases that give an indication of your areas of interest. This might be subjects or themes that particularly interest you, maybe you have worked with them in the past or maybe you would be interested in working with them in the future. 

A few examples:
- technology, modern life, loneliness, communication
- identity, cultural appropriation, poetry, rhythm, translation
- art reviews, critique and opinion, contemporary painting
- abstract language, landscape, weather, atmosphere
- humour, puns, politics, topical themes

We look forward to hearing from you.
