We invite you, the current and future readers of FREIGHT and FREIGHT Collective, to share your own freight as it relates to the book and the anthology. Since it will still be awhile before they are released, we’ll get the conversation started with some posts that correspond to the chapters of the novel:

  1. I found
  2. I lost
  3. I ate
  4. I threw up
  5. I carried
  6. I put down
  7. I fixed
  8. I destroyed
  9. I forgot
  10. I remembered
  11. I hated
  12. I loved

Sharing may be as informal as a short comment on a post. (Comments will be moderated.) But sharing may also be formal, such as short stories, short memoirs, short essays, poems, photos, other visual art, or even videos. How can you join in?

For text-based freight, enter the text as a comment below an existing post that relates to it. If it passes moderation, it will be copied and pasted into a new post and then linked back to the original post. If the text is already housed on your own blog/website, you may submit a brief comment that includes a link to the text instead.

For image-based freight, you may either add the image to the FREIGHT Collective Flickr group or submit a brief comment that includes a link to the image. If the image passes moderation, it will be embedded into a new post and linked to a previous post when appropriate.

For video-based freight, please submit a brief comment that includes a link to the video on YouTube or Vimeo. If the video passes moderation, it will be embedded into a new post and linked back to the original post.

All work will be credited with a byline and the author/artist will retain all rights. If at any point you would like a work removed, simply email editors [at] foldedword [dot] com and let us know. Work will begin posting in May 2011 after the FREIGHT Collective Contest works have all posted.

Thanks in advance for joining our novel community!
