2019 NCW Anthology – Call for Submission
NCW is excited to announce a new mixed-genre anthology exploring the concepts of change, renewal, and rebirth. When things change, we experience a variety of emotions—from anger and fear to courage and hope. There is struggle and strife, but also the opportunity to rise from the ashes and create, grow, and love. Whether your specialty is poetry, fiction, or nonfiction, take us through the good, the bad, and the ugly of change.

Thank you for your support!
To my fellow writers.
Many of you have entered into the idea of writers, writing poems about pictures that local artists have painted.
Now I have an idea, why not reverse the process and let artists paint pictures about our poems?
I am in the process of making this suggestion to some of the local art galleries and libraries. I have taken the first step and would like to be sure that there are enough local poets who are willing to take part in such an endeavor.
If you have a poem that you think would inspire an artist to paint a really dramatic and beautiful picture and would like to be part of this first ever experiment then please reply to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I have the confidence to proceed with this new idea.
Lets make art history together.
