Photogene: A visual impression remaining on the retina after the stimulus producing it has been withdrawn; an after-image.
Photogene is an ongoing contest that provides writers with an original piece of artwork or photography to use as a writing prompt. For each round, we will select one work of art/photography to post to our site and burn into the retinas of writers everywhere, who will then write and submit poetry, fiction, and nonfiction inspired by this piece.
Art & Photography
Please send up to 3 previously unpublished .jpg or PDF documents at a time. You may submit others as soon as we respond. Please be sure to include up to a 60-word bio and a link to your website.
Written Submissions–Closed until the next prompt is announced. Send us your art/photography!
Write no more than 500 words of poetry, fiction, or nonfiction that have been inspired by the current piece of art/photography. We will select and post one winner for each round. Submit only one piece per round.
