Growing The Ekphrastic Review has turned into one of my favourite projects of all time. I couldn't have imagined the enthusiastic response from readers and writers when I started it up just two years ago.
The writers, artists, and readers here have together inspired each other to great heights, new ways of seeing, and wonderful relationships.
I understood that Ekphrastic would be something to which I gave my time, and that in turn, it would give me inspiration, poetry, and connect me to amazing writers. None of us are here for money.
That said- and here's that big "but" - there are times when money would be nice.
Other than my time, for which I am rewarded in the ways mentioned above, Ekphrastic doesn't cost me much. But there are some web and maintenance fees and I would like to do a bit of promoting with postcards I can distribute at the various art and literary events I'm part of.

Since I would rather give you something than ask for presents, consider buying one of my small artworks off of Etsy. All sales through Ekphrastic will go towards maintaining and growing Ekphrastic.
Writers and readers here ALWAYS receive a 25% discount on my small works at Etsy. The coupon is:
Don't hesitate to contact me to ask any questions you have about the artworks.
