The word Ekphrasis translates to “description” in Greek and ekphrastic writing describes or is inspired by a work of art. The theme for our 2020 Literary Contest is Ekphrastic! And four fabulous works that were accepted into our Annual Juried Show were chosen to inspire poetry, short stories and creative non-fiction. Writers can start writing now! Keep stories to 2,500 words and poetry to 40 lines. Make sure you’re getting our newsletter so you get news on our contest opening in January 2020.
