Opaline, a publication of the nonprofit Artitide, is currently seeking creative works (poetry, prose, artwork, photography) surrounding the conversation of the "new normal." Opaline would like artists, academics, and activists alike to reflect on what normalcy was, what normalcy should be, and who should set those definitions.

  • Previously unpublished works only. This includes material that has appeared online in any form, including personal blogs.
  • Simultaneous submissions are permitted as long as you notify us as soon as possible if the work is accepted elsewhere. Once your work is accepted, you must withdraw it from any other submissions. After publication of Opaline, all rights revert to the author.
