“Samsara literally means “wandering-on”…. Instead of a place, it’s a process: the tendency to keep creating worlds and then moving into them. As one world falls apart, you create another one and go there…” — Thanissaro Bhikkhu
We look forward to reading your work. SUBMIT TODAY!
Samsara literally means “wandering-on.” Many people think of it as the Buddhist name for the place where we currently live … But in the early Buddhist texts, it’s the answer, not to the question, “Where are we?” but to the question, “What are we doing?” Instead of a place, it’s a process: the tendency to keep creating worlds and then moving into them.

— Thanissaro Bhikkhu
As Tuesday; An Art Project finds its own answer to “what are we doing,” we invite you to do join us in a celebration of the question itself.
In the first annual spring editor’s contest for Tuesday; An Art Project, we invite poems which you yourself consider to address the concept of Samsara, of wandering-on. We hope that you will interpret this broadly but honestly, and can’t wait to read what you send.
Thank you for making our Kickstarter Campaign such a great success!
Look for Issue 12 in November of 2015…
