Artists interested in submitting visual art for the post cards are invited to submit up to three pieces. jpeg or jpg files are prefrerred with a resolution of at least 300 dpi. Any theme or topic is welcomed and if your work is selected we will be in touch to discuss details.

We strive to accept or decline work within three weeks. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as you notify us of any pieces accepted elsewhere immediately.

Finished postcards will be published and mailed out on the 15th of each month. Subscriptions are available for $15 a year or you can pick up individual postcards for $2 each at readigs, coffee shops and retailers throughout the state.
