Pacifica is proud to announce the advent of our Look and Leap Contest! An original artwork as writing prompt. Submissions are open to all written genres.

Consider the image a generative point for your writing: submissions to this contest do not have to literally address the image or materials, but should utilize the spirit, intent, or materials of the image as inspiration to create a conversation with the piece. For contest rules and details, visit


Good luck!
