Invitation to Love
We are delighted to announce the longlist for our ‘Invitation to Love’ competition. These poets and artists will feature in our upcoming Valentine’s edition in February 2022:
Peter J. King
Elisabeth Sennitt Clough
Diana L. Suárez García
Edward Fashole-Luke III
Jennie E. Owen
Linnea Langfjord Kristensen
Anthony Ogbonnaya Chukwu
Luke Z. Fisher
Nick Alter Inertia
We received nearly 200 brilliant submissions, from which we have selected a longlist of 48 poems and eight artworks. Between now and the end of the year, longlisted poems will be whittled down into a shortlist of 10 pieces, from which one winner and three runners up will be commended.
The pieces chosen for this collection take inspiration from the sweet teenage lust for tv soapstars, the sex and sawdust of the pink room, the treasured friendships of the Double R Diner, the wholesome integrity of Agent Cooper, Waldo’s last words, green gloves, a golden shovel and the mystery of the Blue Rose.
Prize-winners will be announced on David Lynch’s Birthday – 20 January 2022. Each will receive a cash prize, certificate, and an invitation to read at our publication day launch event on 14 February 2022.
David Lynch and Mark Frost have gifted us a legacy of cosmic inspiration. The exquisite intensity of experiencing of art intuitively, rather than analytically. In gratitude, proceeds from sales of this issue will be donated to the David Lynch Foundation.
Orders will open officially in January, but you can place a pre-order if you wish by visiting our Etsy shop here: the6ress.com/invitation.
