A new short poem with title 'Gloss' is one of the lead contributions to Volume 6 Chapter 7 (May 2019) of Visual Verse.
Visual Verse is an online anthology of art, poetry, short fiction and non-fiction. Every month the editors publish an image by a contemporary artist and invite writers to submit pieces of 50-500 words written in the space of one hour in response to the image.
Three writers are commissioned to write 'lead' responses which appear on the first day of the month. This month's texts are in response to this image by by R Coad, and my piece is accompanied by further lead contributions from Rebecca Tamás and David Hayden.
Submissions to Visual Verse are accepted until the 15th of each month. Up to 100 additional responses are published from open submissions every month.
My thanks to editor Preti Taneja for the commission.
