Working with The Light Ekphrastic was such an amazing experience and the results are incredible. I’m blown away by the quality of poetry and art in this issue, and truly honored to have been able to work with such a creative and inspiring artist, Beth Williams.
The process is unique and allows writers and artists to share and collaborate. The editors select writing and art from submissions and then pair them together. Once accepted, I then wrote a new poem based on Beth’s piece The Storm Before the Calm, and she created a new beautiful work of art to go along with my poem A Leveling.
Also, submissions are currently open until June 5, 2015 for the August and November issues.
DEADLINE: June 5, 2015
SUBMISSION FEE: None
