OpPRESS

Calling poets and artists for new, annual, illustrated anthology, *OpUS: Bound TEXT/UREs, Volume 2.* Open to any poet or picture maker who hasn’t already appeared in Volume 1, which describes, by example, a sample range of text(vis)ual images that OpPRESS would be inspired to blend together and serialize. We leave the surveying of our range’s boundaries up to each artist’s “Poles & Prisms.” We prefer to synthesize – or “blend” – artists of the two different disciplines together ourselves, but are open to submissions from those who are [am]bi-hemispheric and have made their own blends.
