Ekphrasis and you

For all my blog-friends, known and unknown, who create drawings, paintings and other visual arts that draw energy from the written word...for all of you who create short prose and poetry in response to visual arts...this one's for you.

The next issue of qarrtsiluni pairs Pica and me as guest-editors, and we're looking for recombinant artist/writer alchemies.

We're looking especially intently for more visual arts to spark the ekphrasis by filling an issue-specific gallery (just FYI, captions identifying the visual artists will show if you click the image.)

(No guarantees on acceptance, but it's really a wonderful venue and community. Please stop by, and please share the info if you can!)

This sounds amazing. You may be hearing from me.

First, congratulations on guest editing this. It should be a tremendous amount of fun. As I am in a mad submission mode, I will have to forge something together. Thanks for the heads up.

YAY Ms. Guest Editor what a perfect choice! This sounds very intriquing.

The captions are there already. You simply have to click on the images to see them.

I had to go check out your bio there. Knew there would be something interesting! Sure enough.

And this is another Bonta-ish enterprise. What busy people yoo both are.

I am too, but it is often merely an excess of ferrying.
