FREIGHT took its first steps toward community during our FREIGHT Collective Contest at the end of 2010.  The contest was open to works that answered the question, “Freight, what are you carrying?” Over the past few months, we’ve had the privilege of reading poetry, fiction, essays, and looking at images that explore all the different types of freight we carry with us through life. Readers voted and the following works were selected as winners:

  • Poetry: “The Universe in My Mop Bucket” by William Krill
  • Prose: “Eighteen” by Dorothee Lang
  • Photography: “Recycling in Zhengzhou” by Elizabeth Switaj
  • Visual Art: “Shaken” by Ruth Schiffmann

All of the winning works, short-listed works, and long-listed works will be published in FREIGHT Collective, a free e-book due to be released mid Spring 2011. The works will also be posted on this blog, one a day, throughout the month of April. 

If you would like a copy of the FREIGHT Collective e-book as soon as it is available, please e-mail editors [at] foldedword [dot] com with the subject line “freight” and let us know if you would prefer it delivered as pdf, mobi, or epub file format.
