East on Central was originally founded by community artists and writers who were mutually inspired by one another. Collaborations are an important continuation of this tradition.

Collaborations are the results of artists and writers working together to create.

What to Know About Submitting a Collaboration

In the case of work submitted by a writer and a visual artist together as a collaborative piece, the submission should be limited in size to the length of three journal pages for combined artwork and writing. The work will be judged by both literary and visual art committees and must be accepted by both, unless either contributor indicates publication of his/her individual part of the collaboration is acceptable.
