Poetry and Art Work Submissions (18+)

At Chronicle of a Lone Sheep, we value not only the creative spirit, but the creative act without which no creative works would exist to move us, inspire us, and if we’re receptive, allow us a glimpse into Reality beyond the bounds of ordinary perspective.

Please feel free to submit as many pieces of original poetry or artwork as you wish us to review for possible showcasing on our Poetry (<18)/18+)  and Art (<18)/18+) Galleries. Every week we will choose one poem and one piece of artwork that speaks to us to feature on our age appropriate “Words Speak” and “Lines Speak” pages. We will contact you to let you know that your piece has been chosen and tell you what day it will showcase.

If we don’t choose your poem or artwork don’t worry and don’t let any voice inside you feel hurt or react with anger. Great works of Art are always the result of LOVE: a PASSION for the ACT of CREATION itself! We shouldn’t allow any BLUES to get in our way! Still, the emotional center is very powerful, and we often feel helplessly emotional or hurt. We suggest that instead of letting emotions drive our reactions, we turn around and use the rainbow of emotion as a driving force for the Act of Creation.

Don’t think about making art, just get it done.  Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.  While they are deciding, make even more art. – Andy Warhol

Also, sometimes we may have too many great pieces to choose from and will put them back in the mix for next time. However, if your piece hasn’t been chosen within five postings then it will not be chosen. But that’s NOT IMPORTANT, so DON’T GIVE UP!!!

Our Advice: After you submit a piece FORGET about it! Yes, you heard us right. Creation is the beauty of creating, and not the memory of the beauty of creating.

Our Motto: “Submit it and forget it!” Simply move on to your next creative piece.

There’s only one way to BE in the ACT of creation:

DO WHAT YOU LOVE, AND LOVE WHAT YOU DO!
