  1. Good Morning,
    Are you interested in black and white photographs ?
    If so, is there a theme this year ?

  2. Words and Images

    Yes we are! And there is no concrete theme as of yet. It will likely come together based around the submissions we receive.

  3. What about color art to go with a short story?

  4. Will you consider previously published pieces?

    Thanks in advance/ Sandy E.

  5. Do you publish art in color as well as black and white?
