Submitting your work

How it works

Create an audio, video, writing, or art ‘Story’ for yourself, look at what others have submitted and then submit your work. The library may feature your work here on the website and on our YouTube and Flickr pages. Also, we are on Instagram at pimalibrary.arts

Create a ‘Story’

Your choice of ‘Stories’ is as wide as your imagination. Create visual art or photographs, write a short story or poetry, write a story about yourself, make music, interview a friend or family member about an experience, or film a book trailer or other video project. Check out the Tips for Stories for motivation.
