Call For Submissions – A Dash of Whimsy

A Dash of Whimsy – April 2020 Series

Call For Submissions!

All forms of comedic art are invited to submit!

The Coronavirus has hit the world hard, and I wanted to give you an opportunity to keep creating and sharing your art with the world. Many people I know have had to cancel their art events or postpone their usual art hubs. Ponder Savant is here for you as another platform for you to keep displaying your work while we are waiting for this pandemic to pass.

Because social distancing can be very depressing, especially when it is not of our own choosing, this series in April is going to be focused on keeping up people’s spirits. What better way to do this than by laughter?

 Any comedic or humorous art is invited to send in their submissions for this series starting next month. Maybe a funny poem, or a song with goofy lyrics. Maybe you are working on your stand-up comedy and you have a video to share. Even a good ‘ol dad joke is welcome! Whatever you’ve got, bring out your silly and send in the artwork that makes you smile.

As we sit in our homes during these social distancing, cooking up what to do with ourselves, let’s make it something delicious. The world has given us a splash of chaos, let’s add a dash of whimsy.

Where To Submit:

Email your submission to Mia Savant at pondersavant@gmail.com with the subject line: A Dash of Whimsy.

Submission Guidelines:

1. Send your comedic art of any kind (poems, music, drawings, paintings, videos, or any medium of creativity!). If it makes you laugh, send it in!

(Disclaimer: Submissions that include hate, discrimination, or inappropriate content will not be accepted).

2. Include a picture of yourself or any photo that you feel represents yourself as an artist.

3. Include any bios, links to your work, or social media sites that you would like to be shared. (If you have any rescheduled art events that were postponed due to the Coronavirus, feel free to include the new date and times of the event and I can include it with your work).
