Yo all --

Check out the great new book Forest Publications is making!!!!

We have opened Submissions for This Next One Goes Out To... (

Forest Publications is publishing a book featuring short stories, poetry, biographical accounts, musical journalism, essays, photography and artwork inspired by a a particular song. Whether it was a tune that drove you to tears, then to the page; a melody that can transport you to different time and place, or a debaucherous adventure centred around a killer gig, we’d like to present your work as an homage to the relationship between literature and music.

Submissions should generally be less than 5000 words.

Send submissions

Send photos and artwork as high-res images

Deadline: October 30, 2010

Forest Publications has long fostered a interactive relationship between music and literature. Two of our publications, The Golden Hour Book 1 and the Golden Hour Book 2 have included an accompanying cd that has featured such artists as John Crave, Le Enfant Bastard, Withered Hand, Francois & the Atlas Mountains, & Billy Liar. Each month, we produce the Golden Hour event which takes place in the Forest Cafe, Edinburgh. The Golden Hour is an event that combines literature readings, bad jokes, music, funny jokes, dancing and visual rubbish in a cabaret setting. Readers have ranged from relatively unknown, untested writers to those with international followings, and musicians have gone on to claim critical and commercial success. Forest Publications has been generously funded by the Scottish Arts Council. To learn more about The Golden Hour visit
