Waking Writer is now accepting visual art submissions!

Waking Writer seeks to highlight selected visual art pieces to help visual artists gain more exposure. While this option is ideal for visual artists with upcoming exhibitions, gallery openings, or recently released books, the service is open to all visual artists hoping to get their works in front of more potential patrons and viewers. We have a preference for visual art that is accompanied by short prose or poetry or connected to the theme of writing and/or literature. Most forms of visual art are welcome, including but not limited to photography, illustration, animation, painting, and drawing.

Submission Guidelines:

Image(s) must be low-res jpeg via a web gallery. Images can be formatted to approximately 1000px on the short edge and saved to medium jpeg quality to keep the file sizes small. Please prepare your image gallery, upload to an online lightbox (or other accessible, online location). 

Submit an e-mail to Questions@BernetaHaynes.com with the following information:

  • a short blurb or description of the artwork (no more than 100 words),*
  • a short bio of the artist (no more than 100 words), and
  • the online gallery/lightbox link.

Submissions that are sent as attachments will not be considered. Submissions should be sent to Questions@BernetaHaynes.com. Indicate “ART SUBMISSION” in your subject line. 

Expect a response regarding your submission within 3 to 5 business days. Visual Art Highlights are posted within one month after a request is submitted. 

All work will be credited to the artist with a link to their website. 

*Please note in your blurb or description if you have an upcoming exhibition or gallery opening, etc.
