i am in fact sad
i am in fact sad
the world crumbles as i pick up the pieces
& put them back on my yacht
dissolving into nothingness
disappearing before my very eyes
people getting crunk in my stead
me, sad or quite possibly sadder
when the sorrow engulfs me
when my feet drag & cant be picked up
you can find me in the harbor
ever so slowly giving up

"30 poets over 30 days in honor of National Poetry Month, curated by Carrie Murphy & Birds of Lace. For 2014, we’ve created a series of poetry “chain letters,” in which we asked poets to share a poem and also ‘tag’ the name of another poet who then shares their own poem, and so on."
TRIPLE CANOPY’S SUMMER INTENSIVE
June 16–27, 2014
Apply online through April 7
What: A two-week intensive in contemporary writing, art, digital media, and the practice of publishing.
Where: 155 Freeman Street, Triple Canopy’s Brooklyn offices and venue, and sites throughout New York City.
Cost: Tuition and materials are provided free of charge. A modest stipend will be offered to all accepted participants to support travel though accommodations are not provided.
Triple Canopy announces its first Summer Intensive, a two-week program in the history and contemporary practice of publication, for twelve higher-level college students, graduate students, and recent college graduates. We invite applications from prospective students with backgrounds in areas such as writing, art, literature, art history, new media, and design.
During the Summer Intensive, Triple Canopy editors and invited artists, writers, and technologists will lead discussions and workshops with participating students, who will research, analyze, and enact an approach to publication that hinges on today’s networked forms of production and circulation but also mines the history of print culture and artistic practice. The program will take place at Triple Canopy’s venue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and will include visits to studios, archives, and cultural institutions.
The Summer Intensive will address such questions as: How have artists, writers, and designers historically used the pages of magazines and books as sites of and material for experimentation? How have new-media publications challenged conventions of authorship and reception, only to have those very challenges soon become the foundation of the new economy? How have artists, writers, designers, and technologists responded to ensuing changes in the media landscape? And how have responses differed in areas with disparate resources and relationships to technology? What are the politics of access and identity associated with online public forums and media?
With the launch of Triple Canopy’s new publishing platform, the magazine invites proposals for new work to be developed by artists and writers in collaboration with Triple Canopy’s editors in the coming year. The editors look forward to working with contributors on research, writing, performance, and visual material related to new projects—as well as on the eventual digital and/or print design of contributors’ work.
Commission recipients receive:
Submissions to Triple Canopy’s 2014 call for proposals may be made via the online form. The deadline for submissions is March 10, 2014. Triple Canopy 2014 commission recipients will be announced April 22, 2014.
