Little Big Stories - Stories on a small scale

Can you tell a story in words and pictures and fit it on a postcard? If so Westminster Library Service want to see your stories for display in Pimlico library!

I'm running a mailart show with Westminster Libraries in London, for a display in Pimlico library from March 25, 2011, so the deadline for this call is March 11th. The works will be on the walls for 2 weeks or so.

What we want is postcard sized (up to A5 should be fine - feel free to interpret this as you wish) stories from mailartists, comics creators and anyone else who can tell a story. The works will go up on the walls of the library as a backdrop to talks by comics creators and artists, and I may even do a talk about mailart.

Ultimately, the idea is to produce a book of all the stories which will go on the shelves of Pimlico library, so your stories will be immortalised, but this isn't yet confirmed. 

We'd love to get as many Little Big stories as possible, so if you intend to send us one, or want to swap some ideas, drop in and lets talk!

Hi Andy,
Mine should be shortly as I sent it off 2 weeks ago (from Canada). Keep an eye out for it:)
(I'm kind of surprised it's taking so long.)

Thanks Val! I'll get back to you by email Martha. Val thanks for your Penny Black story, I'll shortly be posting more pieces to the site.

Hi!  I'm interested in following the general trends of the Stories, but the ongoing saga between Andy and Martha is really something else (a Little little Story, if I may thus label it): Is there any way that the two of you can keep what is eseentially a personal dialogue to yourselves?

Regards, Val

hi Andy I got a collection of emails which I answered but as I read them in the reverse order the answers are perhaps somewhat odd. To recap: I can do all the April dates but May will be a busy month for me so I cannot commit there, at least not yet.

Haha! Thanks for clearing that up Martha. I thought for a minute I may have muddled you. 


Don't book the train ticket just yet Martha, I've just heard that they may need that slot on the 22nd!

and by the way your website is not a muddle; I am!
