Infinity’s Kitchen is a graphic literary journal of experimental writing and art. The publication is online and in print. As they say, they are a kitchen or laboratory seeking new recipes! As with many of the calls for submissions that I receive, I review them and then I submit my own work to understand their process. To submit to Infinity’s Kitchen,  go to the submissions page , scroll down the categories to find Visual Art, and complete the online form and upload your jpeg there.


Deadline: Sun Jun 30th, 2013

Call For Art, Photos, Writing for 1st Issue of New Magazine


For their début Fall/Winter 2012 edition, Momma Tried magazine is seeking writing, photography, and visual arts. Creative and visual perspectives on sexuality are highly encouraged, but not a requirement. Selected entries will be published in print and may also appear online. Momma Tried is published in New Orleans.

Momma Tried magazine will primarily publish works of creative non-fiction ranging from new journalism to essays to reviews to science writing and many categories in between. Momma Tried is  also interested in “collage” based writing such as lyric essays, prose poetry, and anti-fictions, built from scraps. Reality-based and genre-defying fiction are welcome as well. Please no submissions longer than 8,000 words. Files should be .doc or .pdf.

Visual Artists
Momma Tried magazine is particularly interested in submissions of photography, collage, painting and illustration. They are open to works outside of these categories as well. Please include a short explanation about your piece or an artist’s statement along with images of your work. All images should be in TIFF, GIF, or JPEG format and no bigger than 2MG. No more than 8 images per submission, please.

Disruptive Content
With the ad space that occupies most magazines, we will be developing what we call “disruptive content” by using those blocks of space on the page to add additional art, writing, and photos. Our disruptive content will in some cases be satirical fake adverts, references to projects that don’t actually exists, and things that otherwise compliment or contrast to the primary content on the page. If you are interested in submitting something for consideration as disruptive content, please specify this in your subject line.

Send all submissions to:

Learn the Art of Selling Art in New *How To* Book for Artists

A few months ago, I pre-ordered the book How To Sell Art by J. Jason Horejs, at a special discount price. The book arrived in the mail yesterday. The cover price is $24.95

I pulled the book from the envelope and snapped this pic of the book cover. The upper left edge is a little ragged. The book was sent in a padded envelope that showed no sign of damage so I am certain that this book was not damaged in transit.

In the introduction, the author makes important points on how all artists must also wear the hat of a salesperson and that one of the most common errors is “misprioritizing”–attending to some other task while ignoring interaction with a possible buyer.

The author’s Red Dot Blog has more art sales advice.

My Yahoo! National Poetry Month article on artist/poet Mina Loy

In the US, April is national poetry month. Yahoo! gave the assignment to write on a poet, which I accepted as one way to take part this year.

Mina Loy was the most original woman of her generation. The was a painter, sculptor, clothing and hat designer, model, actress, novelist, and poet.
