Over two years, The Ekphrastic Review has grown into a vibrant, dynamic portal of writing inspired by visual art.
We don't believe in charging reading fees, submission fees, or any other fees and we have not received any grants. Ekphrastic is entirely noncommercial- with all time and creativity a generous donation of the participating artists and writers.
If you would like to support The Ekphrastic Review, you can send a donation of any amount through PayPal, using the email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much!
You can also purchase a small artwork from Lorette's Etsy page. All Ekphrastic readers and writers receive 25% off any Etsy work. There are over 100 to choose from!

Ever wonder about who reads us?
Our readership fluctuates constantly between 1000 and 2000 unique visitors a week. It's safe to say 1500 on average because it seldom dips under 1100 and occasionally veers above 2000.
For a small poetry journal maintained by a total of one person, this is pretty phenomenal- thank you! I think we can do better and get more readers to see the wonderful variety of works, to find more people who want to experience art and poetry in this way. I welcome your ideas for promotion. And please share your favourite poems and stories on your social media!
Do you have a journal, newsletter, talk show, podcast, writers' group, magazine? If you'd like to do a story about us, let us know!
I've been using my own Facebook page for all of my endeavours but a page just for Ekphrastic is in the works- I'm hoping we can grow that way. I have a few other ideas too and welcome yours.
