Call For Submission

Upcoming Print Issue [Spring 2021], Riff

If instruments could speak, what would they say? You’re invited to submit to Issue 6, Riff, our first poetic and collaborative jam session-esque issue!

Send us poetry between 20-27 lines that includes the following refrain:

first line: A burst of sudden tempo evokes tremors

end line: rubato rhythms, inclined ears exalt

(line limit includes refrain)

Your piece should begin with the first line and conclude with the end line. Help us set the tone, inspire rhythm, create tempo, birth soul by describing what sounds you hear, expressing how the music and art of others liberates, and/or telling us what you see unfolding in our jam session.

All submissions will be used to create a larger “never-ending” musical poem.

Early Bird Submissions (free): Present – February 28

Accepted Writers Announced: Mid-April 2021
