Beyond Words Magazine is looking for visual artworks for the cover of our 2021 issues #14, #15 and #16 (May, June and July).
We are a visual arts and literature magazine published monthly. We have both digital and print editions.
You are invited to submit your artwork (up to 10 pieces in one submission). If we do not choose your work for our cover, we will still consider it as a "normal" artwork that appears inside the magazine next to a beautiful matching story or poem!
