|Our Mistress of Song, onstage, Alcazar Theater, October 2018|
The Lyrics Section of the Literary Journal is curated by Laura Hemenway, our Mistress of Song. The theme of the Lyrics Section for Volume 3 is “California.” Laura has made most of the selections for Volume 3, but is accepting a few additional songs in recognition of the fact that she may not have heard every song ever written about California.One song will be considered per singer.
Your submission should include:
1. A short (3-4 sentence) biographical paragraph explaining who you are as a songwriter. Include any websites/social media.
2. Include a recording of your song (theme: “California”) in the body of your email. This can be a “scratch” recording, but it should be clear enough that the melody and accompaniment are distinguishable.
3. Include a lyric sheet; (how you want your lyrics to look on the page) in the body of your email.
There is a relationship between the title of Volume 3 (“Bellatrix", a star in Orion's Belt whose name means "Female Warrior.”) and “California” (the title of the Lyrics Section)...can you guess what that might be?
Submissions for Volume 3 are now open and will end on March 1, 2019.
