tripping the light ekphrastic

May 12, 2017

Surely there are as many ways to practice ekphrastic (art-inspired) writing as there are works of art. And here’s another. Visual Verse is an online publication that calls itself “a collaboration. An anthology of art, poetry, short fiction and non-fiction.” At the beginning of each month, VV posts a new image and invites writers to take no more than one hour to write a piece in response, 50 to 500 words in length, and submit it for publication. More than a hundred people offer responses most months. The site is carefully designed and the images are varied and compelling. To see more, visit Visual Verse online and on Facebook.
