Live Culture Coast
October 18-27, 2019
Southern Oregon Coast
You’re invited to the first annual Live Culture Coast, a sensory celebration of fermentation, creativity & exploration that takes along the southernmost 135 miles of the Oregon Coast, from Reedsport to Brookings.
Live Culture Coast (October 18–27, 2019) isn’t a single event, but a menu 75-plus hands-on experiences focused on art, food, nature and adventure. Hosted by the makers, creators, and entrepreneurs of the Southern Oregon Coast, the experiences take place at shores, trails, farms, towns, restaurants, galleries, and businesses. Come for a long weekend or a week. Sign up for one experience or five. To learn more and register, head over to liveculturecoast.com.
The 10-day celebration follows a choose-your-own-itinerary format: Forage for wild mushrooms with a farmer. Read roadside poetry or make a serigraph print. Learn about fermentation, cask ales, brewing or aromatic bitters. Ride a fat-tire bike on the beach. Hike with your five senses. Indulge in a lake-to-table meal.
Live Culture Coast also gives travelers easy ways to explore the best of the Southern Oregon Coast, including the Wild Rivers Coast Food Trail, and outdoor gems like the Oregon Coast Trail, the Whiskey Run Mountain Bike Trails, the Coquille River Water Trail, and the Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeways.
Request for POEMS
Place Based Publishing
Calling all writers & poets!
Live Culture Coast invites writers to submit short poems to temporarily publish along
three roadside locations as well as in the Live Culture Coast website and event guide!
Theme & Style
Poems shall be modeled after the Burma Shave roadside advertisements, which appeared
throughout the United States from 1925 to 1963. Each advertisement was a catchy poem or
jingle spread out over a series of signs that motorists read as they drove by.
• Up to three selected poems will be placed along the Live Culture Coast route—a 135-mile,
excursion through Oregon’s South Coast, where we explore the timeless connections
between land and people.
• Writers may submit up to three entries that reflect the ethos of Live Culture Coast and
Oregon’s South Coast: Ferment. Forage. Brew. Bake. Pedal. Paddle. Wander.
Wonder. Forest. River. Tide. Sea. Science. Art. Community. Live Culture Coast is a sensory
celebration of fermentation, creativity & exploration, set along the edge of the continent,
amidst the wilds and wonders of the Southern Oregon Coast.
• Entries must follow the Burma Shave format: five lines of one to four words each, and lines
two and five must rhyme. Each poem will consist of six signs—one for each line, and the
final for the Live Culture Coast logo and the poet’s name.
Here are links to examples from Fermentation Fest (which inspired Live Culture Coast):
Submission & Jury Process
* All entries will undergo a blind jury process by members from across the south coast.
* Deadline for submissions is Friday, August 2 by 11:59 pm.
* Entries must be submitted via Google Form.
* Poets will be notified of publication status by Monday, September 9.
The 3 poems published on roadsigns will earn $50 each.
Up to 10 additional poems published in print and on the website will earn $25 each.
