"You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up.” ― Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum
From lost loves to lost hopes, let downs to letting go, we've all housed broken hearts. Sometimes we're all alone, and sometimes communities break together, all at once. Every heartbreak holds a choice - retreat or restart? Seal off, or open up? Contain, or continue?
We invite artists in all media to submit original works about heartbreak. We want to hear the deep and abiding stories of hearts at risk, hearts betrayed, and hearts made whole again.you can submit songs, art, poetry and/ or short films here.
