Water is so absolutely essential to life on Earth that every aspect of human culture and every artistic discipline, as well as mythology, folklore, fairytale and legend — have naturally addressed it.
With Water, Water Everywhere: Paean to a Vanishing Resource, a touring new-media exhibition — http://waterwatereverywhere-artshow.com/ — we aim to look at various creative endeavors that consider the world’s water crises. We’re now introducing this poetry, short prose and art blog. Most are contemporary works. Please click on “Water Poetry & Prose,” to the left under Categories to read the growing collection. We will post as often as possible.
We invite writers and artists everywhere to send their poems, short prose and artwork (including media) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: Water Art) for possible inclusion on the blog. Please include a very brief bio.
Eventually, we hope to gather and publish enough material for a book of water poems, prose and some artwork.
Feel free to spread the word.
