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.
