Contribute to new Monument Fellowship book
The National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance and Clinks are curating responses to the question “What should happen to people who commit criminal offences?”
We are part of a collective of organisations, the Monument Fellowship, each funded through the legacy grants of the Monument Trust, which has now closed. In addition to each organisation doing what it is grant funded for, we work together to create a body of work over the course of six years which will provide a legacy for the criminal justice work of the Trust. We pose a question each year which we collect contributors’ answers to. Last year’s book, Curing Violence, was curated by Centre for Justice Innovation.
We are now actively seeking contributions to a book allowing for differing, contrasting and contrary viewpoints. Contributors can either provide the piece themselves or be interviewed by CEO Anne Fox or a colleague from Clinks. There is no minimum word limit but the maximum is 2,000 words. We also strongly encourage creative responses that may not fit a typical essay format – for example poetry, illustration or photography.
If you would like to be considered, or nominate someone else, please send a brief description of what you’d aim to cover (no more than 500 words), to firstname.lastname@example.org marked “Monument Fellowship question” by 31st January 2019.
The deadline for contributions is early May 2019.
