To celebrate five years online at The Ekphrastic Review, we are creating a digital anthology of poems about artwork all over the world!
The Ekphrastic Review has published thousands of poems and stories by over 1000 incredible writers, all inspired by art. We have published famous poets and first time writers, students and teachers, professors and prisoners. We have worked with classrooms for young writers, senior citizen centres, recovery programs, and inmates to encourage ekphrastic writing for everyone.
We have published ekphrastic poems in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Urdu, and Indonesian.
We have run countless challenges, bringing uniquely curated prompts to your ekphrastic practice.
Thank you to everyone for your readership, your talents, and your love. It has been fantastic! Together we have created something very special.
This anthology will be our first one!
Your copy of the ebook The Ekphrastic World: 60 Prompts From Around the Globe, is a collection of carefully curated artworks from artists from America, Canada, Egypt, Iraq, Turkey, India, Vietnam, Cameroon, and the whole wide world. Lorette digs deep into her passion for global art history to bring you a diverse range of voices and styles that will inspire your ekphrastic practice.
Your purchase of The Ekphrastic World brings you the 60 prompts from which we will create the poems for the upcoming anthology. This is a fundraising initiative for The Ekphrastic Review, which has never charged reading fees or cheapened the literary content of our online pages with awful ads for junk no one wants. Your purchase of this ebook qualifies you to submit up to 15 poems or five stories, for consideration for the anthology. (All submissions must be from the prompts in The Ekphrastic World.)
(Someone asked if they could submit more than 15 poems if they purchase more than one copy of The Ekphrastic World. I hadn't thought about it, but I don't see any reason why not, so if you are prolifically inspired, go for it!)
THANK YOU. By purchasing this ebook you are providing much needed support to the Review, and we are so grateful.
Submission deadline is November 1. You'll find everything you need to know about where to send them in the ebook.
