The Mistress of Song Bids You Sing of California...

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.
