The Light Ekphrastic seeks artists and writers interested in collaboration resulting in the creation of new works inspired by the old. Those chosen will be paired with another artist (a poet with a painter, for instance), and each will create a new piece based on their partner’s previous work. The old and new works will be presented together on TLE.

Tips From the Editor: 

If you are chosen to participate, you will be:

Paired with another artist (if you are a writer, you will be paired with a visual artist…and vice versa)
Sent three to five previous works created by your partner artist
Expected to create a completely new work inspired by one of your partner’s previous artworks or writings
