The Wayward Sword: Break the Mold: Cover Art

By Writing Knights Press

put an end to a restrictive pattern of events or behavior by doing things in a markedly different way.

The Wayward Sword wants to break the mold of typical literary mag conventions. We are seeking your experimental visual work. The work you thought you’d never want to show anyone because it’s so “out there” that people “just won’t get it.”

We want it!

“The Wayward Sword: Break the Mold: Cover Art – (Preferred Creator Name)”

Email Body:
Up to 5 potential covers. If we like all of the images, we might use them all, but have 4 of them inside the mag instead of on the cover.


no “Roses are Red / Violets are Blue” crap.
Send us your blood, sweat, tears, shit, mucus, broken bones, stitched hearts, brains ripped to shreds,
make the audience care about your subject
The only hard/fast rule is: NO condoning hate speech or nonconsensual abuse….
You can certainly represent these issues in your art, but condoning these only serve to trigger victims, not to break open peoples’ minds so they can grow and overcome.
