Respond, reframe, reflect, challenge, narrate—the opportunities are endless! Experimental work is welcome. Be innovative, ambitious, and bold—so go on, get Ekphrastic with your bad self.
Our Poetry editor, Meg E. Griffitts, will choose her favorite piece(s) for publication on our site.
Deadline: April 26, 2017
Submit ONE poem here under the Call & Response tab: http://www.frontporchsubmissions.com/
[Artist] MAJLA ZENELI creates her collages by assembling prints executed in mezzotint, a printmaking technique that enables her to speculate on the concepts of replication and the uniqueness of the image. In her compositions she is interested in finding a balance within discords and congruence amidst inconsequental fragments that happen to be adjacent to each other.
