This issue is dedicated to the memory of Baltimore poet and collagist Chris Toll. Chris was supportive of The Light Ekphrastic both as a contributor and a friend. We think he will especially like the otherworldly nature of several pieces in this issue, and we sincerely hope he enjoys them from the great beyond. Rest in peace, Chris.
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 along with a brief explanation of creative process.
DEADLINE FOR INTEREST IN THE MAY 2013 ISSUE: February 28, 2013.
