Nerve Lantern: Axon of Performance Literature

is accepting submissions for Issue 8!

Deadline: September 1, 2014

Nerve Lantern is a journal of experimental performance texts and texts about performance, supporting a range of forms, including poets’ theatre and page-as-stage, published by Pyriform Press and edited by Ellen Redbird.

Polyvocality: encouraged. Verbalized mise en scene: a multidimensional catalyst. Language materiality: let it animate the page, the person. Form: take it places the way travel changes your inner shape.

Look around: swans are waking up. Don’t have all the answers?: no need to shun the quest. Protest: urgent. And: interviews with performance writers, critical texts about performance literature and poetics, reviews of innovative language-centered performances. Etc!

Guidelines

Don’t worry, Ellen Redbird is still making Nerve Lantern books from 100% recycled paper and waxed linen thread, lovingly folding and binding by hand. The $10 price helps buy materials.

But in case you want an issue fast and electric for half the price, Pyriform Press now offers you digital (pdf) copies! The $5 price helps keep the project going.

And with the new PayPal invoice option, you can both buy and read Nerve Lantern while at the computer! It just takes a bit of email correspondence with the eager Redbird. Oh, and an application that reads pdf files.

However, cozy up assured that you can still order a book made of paper that will softly reflect sunlight.
