Frailtycall for submissions, fall 2017
Join Remembered Arts in exploring the enigma of frailty.
Human life is at once transient and tenacious. There are few things more vulnerable, yet vigorous, than a newborn child, or as profitless, yet precious, as the final breaths of a dying friend. This fall, we are seeking work that considers weakness, imperfection, and the unexpected strength and beauty that exist in the most fragile things.
Fall Issue: September 1st
Weekly Edition: October 1st

The aim of The Remembered Arts Journal is to offer a thought-provoking synthesis of real life and real art. We view our contributors and subscribers as whole people, not as simply creators and consumers. We encourage our artists to share glimpses of their practical lives, and our readers to share their own creative undertakings. We are interested in art that considers the tragedies and trivialities of life through awareness of beauty and reverence for meaning. We are interested in artists who resist the temptation to compartmentalize creativity, who integrate their art with their daily lives.
We accept submissions in the following categories:
- visual arts
- creative writing (including poetry, short stories, scripts, and creative non-fiction)
- performing arts
Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name in the file name of any attachments. Our preferred file types are: .docx, .pdf, .jpeg, and .png.
We do not place limits on the number of pieces an artist may submit for each issue, but we do ask that each piece be in keeping with the quarterly theme.
Please include the following with your submission:
- A brief description of the piece (title, medium, technique, inspiration, etc.)
- A short, biographical statement that addresses the following questions: a) Creative accomplishments aside, who are you? b) What inspires your creativity? c) How do you integrate your art with your daily life? (If you are not a professional artist, what else do you do? How do you make time to create?)
- If applicable, links to your blog, website, Esty shop, etc.

WE HAVE ALL FORGOTTEN WHAT WE REALLY ARE. All that we call common sense and rationality and practicality and positivism only means that for certain dead levels of our life we forget that we have forgotten. All that we call spirit and art and ecstasy only means that for one awful instant we remember that we forget.
