What is paradise to you? To many, it’s an idyllic state, a place of extreme beauty or happiness, an overwhelmingly lovely place visited on a holiday, a Utopia. It’s different for everyone. How does paradise look to you? How does it feel? Have you created your own? Have you lost it? Seen it, just out of reach? Has your definition of Paradise changed over the years? Is it a place, a taste, a memory, a dream for the future? Share your PARADISE story with words or imagery. (Submissions focusing on religious deities/systems are generally not the focus of ArtAscent. Spiritual/zen/love vibes are welcome.)
| Eligible Submissions:
Entries may include fiction, poetry, short stories and other written explorations (up to 900 words). Previously published or unpublished are eligible. Submissions must be the original work of the applicant(s). Open to international writers. Apply using the online form.
