Orange River Project collective: Open call for writers

10 November 2023

We invite submissions that consider the historic, mythological, environmental, socio-political and economic factors that have shaped the river imagery and the river’s evolving form. We are interested in submissions that think through the river and the activities that take place within and alongside it, and that consider those who rely on this cycling and vulnerable resource. What relationships become visible through the river? How is the river a legacy of a history of human-environmental interaction and violent intervention?

The texts form part of a publication on the river that will be published in 2024/2025.

We welcome all kinds of written work and are especially interested in original and creative research and writing. We encourage all potential contributors to write as you speak, emphasising lucidity and originality in writing without compromising on creativity. A writing piece should be between 3 000 and 5 000 words. A stipend will be given to the selected writers.

Please send a 500-word expression of interest or abstract to orangeriverproject@gmail.com by 10 November 2023.
