From Jolene Sharp, Council on Developmental Disabilities –

Would you like your art to be featured in our 2022 Breaking Ground magazine arts issue? Tennesseans with disabilities and their family members are invited to send us your works.

We will consider:

  1. fiction, creative essays, and poetry up to 1,000 words
  2. photos
  3. all other forms of visual artwork

We also welcome stories about arts programs in Tennessee that involve or are led by people with disabilities.

The arts issue will come out in early spring 2022. If your work is chosen, your name, a short bio, and the title of the artwork will be featured in the magazine. You will also get copies of the printed magazine to keep and share.

Please include:

  • your full name
  • the best way to contact you
  • and a one- or two-sentence bio with your submission

Limit submissions to 3 per person. Submission deadline is Jan. 15, 2022.
