REMINDER: Fading Light
I enjoy unexpected pairings of food and wine. It never fails when I take a tentative sip of wine after a food I suspect will not compliment, I make the grimace face and am often surprised how well it works. Is it luck? Maybe I just like wine and appreciate the chance to have another glass…regardless. As I get older, I have found that artistic collaboration keeps me motivated as well. This call offers you an opportunity to produce work while still being someone else’s muse. Great idea…
Check out this Call for Entries from Open to Interpretation‘s juried book competition Fading Light. Have your work become the artistic inspiration for a literary masterpiece today! Keeping reading for details…
