Imagine This! An ArtPrize Anthology
Imagine This! An ArtPrize Anthology is a collection of short stories, essays and poems from winning writers who participated in a national literary competition. The published works range from lyrical introspection to playful scenes to the darkscapes of human nature. The anthology includes stories like "Damascus River Reclamation," which explores the depths of despair and the soaring elation of hope, while "Viola Jasper" gives an account of human behavior when it has been pushed beyond endurance. Poems such as "Syncopated Rhythm" and "Afterbirth" capture moments of deep love and the essay "One Secret" and the poem "Why I Write" follow human ingenuity and creativity to the core. Imagine This! also features photos of eleven significant works of art from the past years of ArtPrize. Readers will find first place winner Chris LaPorte's "Cavalry" and the iconic "Nessie" all wrapped in a cover featuring the resplendent "Svelata" by Mia Tavonatti. Imagine This! An ArtPrize Anthology is a celebration of the written word that adds to the wide scope of creativity fostered by ArtPrize.
