The Ekphrastic Review 117

About

The oldest meaning of the Greek-derived word "ekphrasis" is "out of speech" or "out of expression." It is used to denote the age old tradition of writing inspired from art. Ekphrastic defines the world broadly for its own purposes- any writing or kind of work of art about another work of art. In other words, our focus is on the intersection of writing and art, but will also acknowledge that symphonies, films, etc are sometimes their own kinds of expressions about art.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
