“Spring” International Open Call to Artists and Writers—Deadline May 31, 2023
The artist's and writer's call for the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Spring issue is now open.
The current issue theme is spring. The seasons pull us from one state to another, perhaps from frozen, hibernating and quiet to thawed, reborn, and growing. Sometimes our spring lets us embrace something new, fall into first love, or see fresh horizons. Spring brings birds, butterflies, frogs, nests, tulips and fragrant blossoms. What’s the seasonal impact in your world? What makes spring more tantalizing than winter or summer? Spring can be literal, abstract, emotional or intellectual; past, present or future; brief or lifelong. Express your spring with words or imagery.
ArtAscent is a theme-based publication that showcases artists and writers from around the world practising a broad range of skills, including painting, illustration, photography, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, textile, jewelry, printmaking, digital graphics, fashion, film, video, installation, performance, story writing and poetry writing.
The selected artists and writers, up to 40, will be published in our print and digital magazine and the two-year online exhibition, as well as receive a free digital copy of the magazine. Four will also receive a feature section with a profile written about them.
