Portland Bill
A free, public publication.
June 2014

Artist Paul Soulellis will be in residence at Portland Tophill Library for the month of June to produce Portland Bill, a print-on-demand, community newsprint publication. Paul will gather material from Portland communities and design a multi-layered, diverse expression of local life and history. Portland Bill is a participatory publication—all material included will be contributed from residents of Portland and freely distributed back to our communities in September 2014.

Creative writing, essays, folklore, photography, drawings, maps, digital art, found material, poetry and recipes are all welcomed, but anything may be contributed to Portland Bill. Every effort will be made to include all submissions. Any resident of Portland may contribute—regardless of age, education or artistic experience.

Your contribution may be submitted in a few different ways —

— by sending digital material directly to theportlandbill@gmail.com;
— by attending one of the artist’s meet-ups during the month of June;
— by leaving your submission at Tophill Public Library;
— by leaving your submission in one of the local Portland Bill dropboxes.

Submissions are due by 27 June.

Please consider lending words, pictures, memories and impressions to create a diverse, community-based publication. Each voice included will deepen Portland Bill’s personality and add to this unique portrait of Portland.

Portland Bill will be freely distributed during the b-side multi media arts festival in September 2014.

    I am a statistics professor from Turkey. I really like Portland. I love Portland cause my daughter Gözde Dermanel is living there with her housband Savaş Dermanel and her little baby Kaan Dermanel. My wife Semra Gürsakal has spent six months in Portland and she liked the way of living in Portland without cigarettes. I wish happy and wealthy life for all the Portland people.
