The artist’s and writer’s call for the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Journey issue is now open.

The current issue theme is journey. We are all on a journey to another space. Sometimes our journey is an adventure, a quest, a road trip to push our limits or just to taste life’s pleasures. Other times it is to escape from what is to something better, to heal or find wholeness. What’s the destination? Is the destination more valuable than the path to it? Journeys can be physical, emotional or intellectual; past, present or future; brief or lifelong. Express your journey with words or imagery.

ArtAscent is a theme-based publication that showcases artists and writers from around the world practising a broad range of skills, including painting, illustration, photography, mixed media, ceramics, sculpture, textile, jewelry, printmaking, digital graphics, fashion, film, video, installation, performance, story writing and poetry writing.

The selected artists and writers, up to 40, will be published in our print and digital magazine and the two-year online exhibition, as well as receive a free digital copy of the magazine. Four will also receive a feature section with a profile written about them. All benefit from exposure to art lovers and engage our readers through our social media, website, and print and digital issues. ArtAscent provides the opportunity for the voices and visions of writers and artists to be shared in a professional and accessible platform.

ArtAscent presents up to 100 high-level designed pages printed on premium-quality paper. This magazine issue is curated editorial content with no outside commercial ads.

Entries may include all art mediums that can be represented in 2D and written explorations of up to 1,800 words. We love diversity. Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). Creatives featured in the past can apply again with other works not previously published in ArtAscent. HOW TO APPLY: Apply using the online application form on our website. NOTIFICATION: Notification is made by email to subscribers of the ArtAscent newsletter.
