Due to the collaborative nature of Brown Williams, submissions for the journal are by invitation only because of the logistics of creating a geometric structure within which all the pieces must fit. The Chinese whispers model we use (passing pieces on to other writers for inspiration) means we operate to a strict timetable and writer order and we must know who our contributors are.
In order to open out the journal to a wider public, we are devising a Blog version, initially text only, which is open to everyone and we encourage you to take part. The rights to your contribution will remain with you. Please note that by contributing to the blog you give us the implied right to publish online. We will not print the blog in hard-copy.
Writers, musicians and artists invited to submit must be inspired by the pieces they receive. The pieces should not have been previously published. We reserve the rights to first printing both in hard-copy and online. By submitting to the journal writers and composers/musicians give us the implied right to pass their pieces on to the other artists in the project as part of the process of inspiration. Writers’ pieces will be passed on anonymously in order that the response piece is inspired by the text rather than the author.
On submission, contributing writers give us the implied right to publish the work both in hard-copy (Brown Williams Journal) and online (www.brownwilliams.org). Contributing artists or graphic designers give us the implied right to publish the work both in hard-copy (Brown Williams Journal) and online (www.brownwilliams.org). Contributing composers and musicians give us the implied right to publish the work both on CD (included with Brown Williams Journal) and online (www.brownwilliams.org). Submissions to past journals will be retained in the permanent online archive. The piece, whether text, music or visual, will be permanently accredited to the artist either in the contents and/or on the page in which it appears. Due to the collaborative nature of the journal in hard-copy the writers’ names only appear on the contents page, to maintain the experience of the journal as a single piece of writing.
