WORD of ART 2 is our second collaboration of authors and artists. This is how it works: Authors submit stories (see rules below), we post those submissions online and invite artists to select a story that inspires them. The artists then create a canvas to accompany the words. A hard cover, full-color book with both word and art is published. Then we host a gallery reception and book release party to showcase the displayed art with a program featuring readings and books for sale in September.
Word submissions open Saturday, February 14, 2015.
Work can be any genre– fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.
Subject matter is at your discretion, but please, nothing of a graphic nature.
Stories must be original and previously unpublished.
Stories must NOT exceed a 200 word count, poetry limit is 16 lines.
Submissions exceeding the word or line count will not be posted.
All submissions must have a title. This will also be the title of the accompanying art piece.
You may submit up to 3 pieces, but no more than two will be published.
Submit your work to WordofArt@inprintwriters.com in the body of the email.
No attachments will be opened.
Multiple submissions should be sent separately.
Include name, address, phone and a brief bio, 50 words or less, in 3rd person.
Submissions close March 21, 2015.
Words will be posted on the In Print website Monday, March 23, 2015 for artist selection.
Look for Artist Guidelines coming soon.
Last year’s Word of Art event was a HUGE success. We look forward to topping that– with your participation! Space is limited to only 30 authors and 30 artists for both the gallery exhibition and the publication, making this an exclusive collaboration.
