My work on the cover of Free Verse Revolution!

What an amazing thing to happen! My photomontage has made the cover of the upcoming first issue of Free Verse Revolution.

Free Verse Revolution:

Coming in mid-March as our first digital issue… hebe (the fountain of youth)!

Below is the front cover, featuring an incredible piece of visual art by Constance Bourg. We feel this piece of art captures the broad mix of work within the issue as our contributors explore the natural world, classical imagery, youth, exploration, what it means to grow old and how we yearn to return to the past.

Constance Bourg lives in the Flemish part of Belgium, where she volunteers at her local library. Her poems have appeared in Rogue Agent, The Poetry Shed, Blanket Sea, The Pink Plastic House anthology and the Emma Press anthology of illness. She also dabbles in collage and is currently working on a book-long erasure poetry and collage project transforming Tove Jansson’s The Summer Book. She leads a part-time life because of an invisible disability called ME/CFS. You can find her at constancebourg.wordpress.com

    1. I just call it “The barmaid”. It illustrates a poem which will also be featured in the magazine. For the montage I borrowed the mythological figure of Hebe from the painting “Hebe Giving Drink to the Eagle of Jupiter” by Gavin Hamilton.
