crochet calls for submission Crochet Calls for Submission and a Question/Poll

Every weekday I’ve been posting crochet job listings. Then once a week, on Tuesdays, I’ve been posting links to open calls for submission that may appeal to crocheters. Here’s my question … do you like it kept separate this way or would you rather see the calls for submission worked into the daily job posts? Take the quick poll below to let me know your thoughts:

Should the Crochet Calls for Submission be Kept Alone or Mixed with the Daily Job Links?

  • Keep it alone, once a week
  • Work it into the daily weekday job listing posts
  • Get rid of calls for submission altogether
  • It doesn’t matter either way



Crochet Pattern Calls for Submission

Crochet Traditions 2012

Interweave’s historical PieceWork publication puts out an annual issue focusing on crochet traditions. They are seeking “well-researched feature stories accompanied by fine thread crochet projects that complement the story or projects accompanied by introductions that provide the historical information on the pattern, the technique, or both. In either case, the historical context is paramount.”

Deadlines: 1/28/12 (proposals), 3/1/12 (finished submissions for accepted proposals)

PieceWork July/August 2012

Crochet Writing Calls for Submission


Does your crochet inspire you to write poetry? Could it? Here are some places accepting poetry submissions that might be a good match:

  • Thrush. This is a fairly new journal of poetry published six times per year. No pay, no fee to submit.
  • Jelly Bucket. Submissions accepted through 6/1/12.
  • Able Muse. Especially enjoys poetry with accompanying photography so perhaps it’s a way to show off your crochet!
  • Oaken Transformations. Currently seeking poems by Michigan writers to be posted on their art walk.

Torpedo Factory Has Several Calls for Submission

The Target Gallery Torpedo Factory has several open calls for submission for various art exhibits and shows that might be of interest to crochet and fiber artists.

Good luck all!
