What We're Looking For

We welcome creators from all backgrounds at any stage in their artistic journey to submit their best work. We crave art that provokes a range of feelings: vulnerability, connection, intensity. We want art that surprises us, challenges us, draws us into its expressions and forms, guides our eyes from the next page to the next. We are proud to serve as a vehicle that brings works of art from emerging artists into the world. We hope that you will join us in our mission to share art by submitting your work to us.
