Frogs’ legs are one of the better-known delicacies of French and Cantonese cuisine. They are also eaten in other regions, such as the Caribbean, Portugal, Slovenia, northwest Greece, Italy, Spain, and the Midwest southern regions of the United States.  A type of frog called the edible frog is most often used for this dish. They are often said to taste like chickenbecause of their mild flavor, with a texture most similar to chicken wings. I like them with a side cucumber-dill yogurt.  Yum.  There is no witty food/art connection today–I just love frog legs, and jumped at the opportunity. hehehe.  You cannot consume this next opportunity from Toad, at least not literally, but it does sound delicious. Take a look…

Check out this Call for Submissions for Toad, an online journal of art and writing.  No submission fee–just a chance to be heard, metaphorically speaking.  Take a leap into the deep end of the pond…


Learn more about the Toad journal online!Toad comprises any number of species of artists of the creative order, often characterized by their exciting work, thick skin, and wart-like ideas. To maintain its lively form, Toad cultivates bimonthly issues with rotating editors and staff to ensure that the content stays fresh and diverse.

Toad: they rivet.


Every other month Toad showcases new poetry, prose, and visual art. As an ever-evolving amphibian, the editors of Toad select artists (“toadists”) from one of three pools: the first is a flourishing man-made pond, supplied with recommendations offered by previous contributors. The second is their sportive, always popular pool of open submissions. Lastly but not leastly, is the puddle-wonderful artistic response forum, which collects creative kickback from readers to establish an art orgy for all to enjoy.

Learn more about the Toad journal online!MEDIA:  They want it all: videos, music, collaborative projects, ekphrastic works, genre-crossing/bending art, and of course, all the usual suspects with Verbal Kint included.

DEADLINE:  Toad accepts submissions year-around.

ENTRY FEE:  There is no entry fee!

SUBMISSIONS:  By email and carrier pigeon only.
