Calling All Muses
Seeking Art of every kind
Short stories, flash fiction, poetry, lyrics, first pages from books, music,
photographs, drawings, paintings, comics,
hand-written poems, sculptures, tattoos, street art,
graffiti, installations, textiles, ceramics, and any other 3D art.
Currently Seeking Special Topics:
We are especially interested in multi-medium artists – musicians who paint, photographers who do ceramics, etc. But if you only do one thing (which I doubt!), that’s OK, too.
Contact us first with some general information about your submission.
