Sadly, after much consideration, West Trestle Review has been taken out of commission. Thank you for your support.
In celebration of National Poetry Month, West Trestle Review is once again offering an ekphrastic exquisite corpse.
Here's your assignment if you choose to accept it:
In the comment section below, write a line of a poem in response to this photo. It may or may not be in response to the line above it. At the end of the month the lines will be arranged into a poem that will be shared here. Check back for the results, or, better yet, sign up for our mailing list!
Are you interested in supporting great poetry by women and non-binary poets in California and Nevada? Are you interested in sharing the voices of underrepresented poets and women of color? Do you love letterpress and building community? Are you willing to work for admiration, cookies, and the knowledge that you're making the poetry world a better place?
Disclaimer: There may not be any cookies.
If so, send an email with the usual useful information to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 31. Please include the names of three poets you admire.
Women, non-binary folks and people of color are encouraged to apply.
