Submission Details

If you are a writer, poet, playwright, novelist, or any other kind of wordsmith or simply a person with an interest in words, and would like to get involved, drop us an email or contact us directly through the website contact form.  (Both to be found under the contact heading).

Submission possibilities

  • You can submit a piece of writing by email and request that it is written on the street for you by one of our members.  Just make sure to include details of the specific place you want it written as well as whether or not you wish to be acknowledged or remain anonymous.
  • You can also go and write on the street yourself and send in your piece of writing as well as documentation photographs of it in situ and we will post it up on the website and place it in the website archive.

We are currently accepting one time contributions as well as longer term memberships.  There will be opportunities to work both individually and collectively.

All contributions will be posted on this website, as well as across our social media pages.

The hope is that in time we will be able to gather all contributed material into a publication highlighting a new perspective of the city.

Note:  All material contributed will be automatically posted on the website, unless requested otherwise.  Material will not be published in a printed publication without prior consent.  And all contributions, both writings and documentation photographs will be properly acknowledged unless there is a request for anonymity.

  1. there’s a stone and its black and green and it lies on the river bed with neither eyes to see nor tears that can be shed. yet the light of a million moons its drank searching for the dead……think before you sink!

      • Dear Brendan, Thank you very much for submitting, it is a beautifully poignant piece which very much raises awareness of the darker side of experiences along the river. I could write it for you or with you, if you like, and then photograph it, but it would be much more effective if you could pick the specific place along the river. And of course, if you prefer, you are more than welcome to write it yourself and send me the photograph to post on the website. Thank you and kindest regards, Lotte.

  2. It’s just a street
    where strangers and friends meet,
    In winter the rain pours down
    11.30pm on I rarely saw a frown

    melodies sprinkle through the air
    taking away all despair
    couldn’t count the times
    the music transcends our minds

    its just a street
    on which all cultures meet n greet
    but even in the heat don’t walk up there on bare feet

    your friendly smile
    makes people want to stop a while
    a street
    that sings with the help of six strings
    gives us all wings.

    • Dear Elaine,

      Thank you so much for your submission. We would be happy to write this for you in the place you specified. It is a very nice lighthearted way of looking at those streets, and it is very nice to have it at a corner which is usually where people would meet up. Can I ask out of curiosity why you chose outside the closed down pharmacy? Thank you and kindest regards,

      Lotte.

  3. can be written outside the old Fergusons pharmacy (closed down now) on O Connell street /thomas street, 🙂
