Wordsmith: One More Week





This spring, Paper Darts Literary Magazine, curator Ann Tozer, and jeweler Stephanie Voegele will present a collaborative exhibition exploring the connections between literature and art jewelry. We seek work from jewelers concerned with issues of text, literature and storytelling and writers who engage with ideas that surround jewelry, objects and the body. Displaying these two art forms together, our exhibition will expose where writers’ and jewelers' work meet.

Selected entries will be included in an exhibition to be held at Magers and Quinn Booksellers and an accompanying publication. Both will coincide with the Society of North American Goldsmiths’ conference in Minneapolis April 23–26, 2014.



Jewlery submissions are officially closed, but writers have one more week to submit their work. 


1. A piece of writing that engages with ideas that surround jewelry, objects and the body. Accepted genres include comics, poetry, fiction, or nonfiction. All submissions must be 700 words or less. Comics must be contained to an 8.5 x 11 in page. 

2. Cover letter and a short bio.

3. Submission fee of $6.

Please submit materials via SUBMITTABLE


All entries must be received by February 22, 2014
