Call for Ekphrastic Writing

CALL FOR EKPHRASTIC POEMS & OTHER WRITINGS

Filipino American Artist Directory is sponsoring an ongoing project and Call for Poems & Other Writings inspired by the Directory’s artists.  Ekphrasis relates to “the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on” artworks so as “to amplify and expand its meaning” (see Poetry Foundation).

To participate and submit, writers are asked to write on any artwork by the artists in the Filipino American Artist Directory—you may choose images on our website, or on the individual artists’ websites. We are open to poems, flash fiction, and other creative writings.

You don’t have to be Filipino to submit work for this project.

This feature will be edited by Eileen R. Tabios who has written numerous ekphrasis poems, art-inspired fiction, as well as art criticism.  Send your writings, with reference to the artwork, as well as a bio to Eileen through galateaten@gmail.com

In addition to publication, participating poets and writers will receive one of Eileen R. Tabios’ ekphrasis poetry collections: either Reproductions of the Empty Flagpole which reflects abstract expressionist art or SUN STIGMATA which reflects sculpture.

Watershed

Colin Dodds‘ book, Watershed, “A new literary thriller about the unlikely dawn of a surprising future,” will debut on May 12. Dodds’ poem, “Graverty’s Revenge” was published in the Winter 2016 issue of Local Nomad. Congratulations, Colin! Find out more about the author on Colin Dodds’ Amazon page.

“The masterfully dystopian WATERSHED unpacks the future of a modern America that, while spectacular, nobody was expecting… It’s a future that, as Leonard Cohen sang, is murder. The revelations of prose in WATERSHED makes that murder enjoyable… one of the few things worth believing in.”

Looking at the Facts

Brilliant essay by Bret Stephens in Time on our willingness to discard objectivity and principles once considered sacred (and how we can overcome that tendency), from the full text of his remarks for the Daniel Pearl memorial lecture, UCLA. And after you finish reading this, take a look at Local Nomad’s latest call for submissions.

Excerpt:

We are not a nation of logicians.

I think it’s important not to dismiss the president’s reply [to a question from Bill O’Reilly about the validity of a claim by Trump] simply as dumb. We ought to assume that it’s darkly brilliant — if not in intention than certainly in effect. The president is responding to a claim of fact not by denying the fact, but by denying the claim that facts are supposed to have on an argument.

He isn’t telling O’Reilly that he’s got his facts wrong. He’s saying that, as far as he is concerned, facts, as most people understand the term, don’t matter: That they are indistinguishable from, and interchangeable with, opinion; and that statements of fact needn’t have any purchase against a man who is either sufficiently powerful to ignore them or sufficiently shameless to deny them — or, in his case, both.

If some of you in this room are students of political philosophy, you know where this argument originates. This is a version of Thrasymachus’s argument in Plato’s Republic that justice is the advantage of the stronger and that injustice “if it is on a large enough scale, is stronger, freer, and more masterly than justice.” Read more HERE.
