Kati Lewis of SLCC Community Writing Center stops by with a call for submissions to this year's Great Salt Lake Anthology.

  • June 30: Deadline for submissions to the 2024 Great Salt Lake Anthology due by 11:59 a.m. June 30th. "The SLCC Community Writing Center is part of the Great Salt Lake Collaborative (GSLC), a Solutions Journalism collaborative of more than a dozen Utah organizations working together to share stories about Great Salt Lake and ways to protect our city’s dying namesake. For 2024, we are proud to announce a call for submissions for the 'Lake as Legacy/Lake as Future' Community Anthology 2024. We're especially interested in speculative fiction—written, visual, multimedia, performance—that responds to the themes of 'lake as legacy' and/or 'lake as future.' We will consider submissions outside of speculative fiction as long as they directly and meaningfully respond to the chosen themes. Text-based submissions over 3,000 words that are accepted will be excerpted for the print edition. The entirety of the work will be published online. This call is open to any writer, photographer, performing artist, and visual artist ages 15 and older." Submissions must be submitted via Submittable no later than 11:59 p.m. on June 30, 2024.

Choreographer Roxanne Gray of 801 Salon and dance artist Jonathan Kim talk about this weekend's Salon No. 30.

  • May 18: 801 Salon No. 30, 7:00 and 8:30 p.m. at Vis, 801 S. 800 E., SLC. "An evening of sound and movement featuring a colorful, immersive, and improvisationally based dance performance by local choreographers Jon Kim, Grace Smith, Cooper Sullivan, and Mads Ward; with live instrumentation by Wachira Waigwa-Stone. Exploring themes of light + color, these performers bring a crackling energy to this after-hours experience. Hosted by Vis., a design-minded optics shop at 8th and 8th, this 801 Salon curation exemplifies the collaborative talent of our local arts community."
