Pairing writers and artists, each issue of The Light Ekphrastic online creates a space for a new poem, story, photograph, painting or other piece of artwork inspired by work previously submitted by their partner artist. Contributors typically have about six weeks to create their new work. Founded by editor Jenny O’Grady in 2010 as a way of inspiring friends who hadn’t written or made art in a while to get back into practice, the newest issue features works in conversation by Marlayna Demond, TS S. Fulk, Lela Hannah, Mary Huddleston, Layla Lenhardt, Timothy Nohe, Keleigh Norman, and Beth Schabb Williams. What a beautiful, poignant, and playful venue! Submissions are open year-round.
