Call for Submissions – Rattle’s Ekphrasis challenge, DEADLINE: March 31, 2016

Rattle has recently decided to run a series of ekphrastic prompts and publish the winning poets, one poem selected by the artist, another by their editors.

THE PROMPT: “For the month of March, our image is the collage below, “Metamorphosis” by Thomas Terceira (click for a larger version). You can find more of his work at his website, but only write your poems after the image below. Good luck!”

DEADLINE: March 31, 2016

    • I get that question pretty often :). Here’s how I answered it for an interview on The Fem: “Several years ago I set writing aside, decided I needed to organize myself first and essentially de-prioritized it. Years past and I found myself emotionally ok, but definitely not content. Something was missing. I wound up at a small poetry slam event and quickly realized what was missing. I started writing again immediately and haven’t looked back since. Sure, I am happy to support the literary arts in any way I can, but ultimately, I do all of this for me. An extra benefit is that it also makes me emotionally more accessible to my family and friends.” You can read the whole interview here if your interested :). Thanks for all the shares and comments!!!
