Opportunity for Visual Artists: Seeking Local Art for Book Cover

Catch the flower in its bloom – 

it has no other life.

– Susan Meehan

Day Eight is looking for an image to license for the cover of a book of poetry we’re publishing this summer. This is not a commission: we’re offering $100 to license an existing image for the cover.

Are you a local visual artist, or do you know one that might want their work featured on the cover of the book? Email any images available for consideration to Admin@DayEight.org.

If you’re an artist willing to let us use any image on your site you can email and let us know, “hey, look through my site, you could use anything on here,” or, you can also email url’s or jpg’s of individual images available for the cover.


The book we’re publishing is by Susan Meehan. Susan won the DC Poet Project in an open competition, and her book, The Color of Magic, will be published this summer through partnership with Brink Media, the DC Public Library, Upshur Street Books, LISC DC and support from the DC Commission on the Arts. Learn more about Susan here, and save the date for the book launch reading: August 12, 2017 2pm – 3:00pm at the Anacostia Public Library.

Thank you for forwarding this call for images to any artist you know that might be interested!
