Headlight Call for Editors-in-Chief

Headlight is offering a call-out for Editor-in-Chief positions for the 2015-2016 academic year.  If you’re interested in getting involved with Concordia’s graduate student anthology, submit a CV and brief cover letter to headlightanthology@gmail.com by Sunday, September 6th, 2015. A position description is below:

Headlight Anthology Editor-in-Chief Position

 As a team, the Headlight Editors-in-Chief will be responsible for every aspect of the anthology, including its mandate, promotion, content, and finances:

 -The mandate, scope, readership, appearance, and content of the anthology.

-Selection of editorial team (poetry/fiction/non-fiction editors, editorial assistants, designer, etc.)

-Co-ordinate and support the editorial team

-Apply for and follow up on internal funding to support the production of the anthology, apply for monetary transfers, and keep track of funding bodies and processes for next year’s team.

-Act as liaison between students and administration

-Oversee production, including the call for submissions, the selection process, and launch preparation in the spring.

Perks:

Headlight‘s mandate is to promote student work and to develop the Concordia university literary community. Beyond this, the Editor-in-Chief(s) has a unique and exciting opportunity for creative freedom. Along with their team, they have the opportunity to make it “their own” by choosing the design, format, genre, and style. They have the power to transform the anthology to best serve the student body.

-The position serves as excellent personal and professional experience. It is a strong presence on a CV if one goes into publishing and is highly regarded by other related fields as well.

-One has the opportunity to collaborate directly with students and faculty.

The position is voluntary. It can be a lot of work, but between three or four Editors-in-Chief, it is quite manageable.

Daphne Marlatt & Diane Wakoski: Performing the SpokenWeb Archive

EVENT: Daphne Marlatt & Diane Wakoski: Performing the SpokenWeb Archive (Open to the Public)
Friday November 21st, 2014
Exhibits at 6:00 P.M.
Reading at 7:00 P.M.
Grey Nun’s Building
Room: GN-M100
Address: 1185 Rue Saint Mathieu, Montréal, QC H3H 2H6
Phone: (514) 848-2424 ext. 8000

The SSHRC IG SpokenWeb Research Team is pleased to announce its second event in the “Performing the Spoken Word Archive” series. The event will be held Friday, November 21st, 2014 at 6:00 P.M. It will feature readings by poets Daphne Marlatt and Diane Wakoski. Marlatt, a member of the Order of Canada and winner of the Dorothy Livesay prize in poetry for The Given. She has written close to thirty books. Diane Wakoski was a Distinguished Professor and Poet in Residence at Michigan State University from 1975 – 2012. Her work has been published in more than 25 collections, including most notably The Motorcycle Betrayal Poems in 1972 from Simon & Schuster and a book of selected poems, Emerald Ice, published in 1989, which won The William Carlos Williams prize from the Poetry Society of America.
As a live SpokenWeb event this reading will explore how an archive can re-enter public space and become performance. In this event the authors will “read alongside their past selves”–that is, selections of archival audio recorded during the Sir George Williams University Poetry Reading Series (1966-1974). The event will also feature listening stations from the SpokenWeb Oral History project where audience members can listen to past interviews conducted by the team. Furthermore, there will be an onsite memory clinic where audience members can enter a private booth where they will be invited to record their experiences with the event or performed poetry more generally.

Oral Literary History: The Poetics of Real Life Stories with Daphne Marlatt & Diane Wakoski

Oral Literary History: The Poetics of Real Life Stories with Daphne Marlatt & Diane Wakoski (Open to the Public)
Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling.

LB- 1042

Friday November 21st at 11am-12pm

Well known poets Daphne Marlatt, a member of the Order of Canada and winner of the Dorothy Livesay prize in poetry for The Given, and Diane Wakoski a Distinguished Professor and Poet in Residence at Michigan State University from 1975 – 2012 and winner of The William Carolos Williams prize from the Poetry Society of America for her work Emerald Ice will be giving a talk. Their discussion will focus on oral history and poetry in order to explore the manner in which memories, facts and fiction intertwine when writing poems. Wakoski whose work has been published in over twenty-five collections creates innovative poems encapsulated in epistolary text, so that the four books can be read as a progression from her epistolary. Marlatt who has published almost thirty books, has also published a work based in oral history entitled Opening Doors in Vancouver’s East End: Strathcona. We hope you will be able to join us for this engaging discussion!
