Unleash Your Inner Artist

When I submitted to Portal magazine for its 2018 edition, I hoped that everything I had written in the past year would get reviewed by the Portal editors and perhaps end up in the 2018 issue.

Portal, as luck would have it, also publishes visual art. Powell River, where I live, is a place booming with artists of all kinds: Megan Hildebrand, Anna May Bennett, and Autumn Skye Morrison, to name a few.

Each had a hand in making me realize that it isn’t just with paint or chisel that one can express. These are some of the artists who inspire me to write.

In a community as small as Powell River, people remember names, accomplishments, inspiring works of art, and who created them. As a recent but permanent member of this community, I realize I am now one of those people; I’m just not known yet. Opportunity knocks.

Celebrate your art by submitting to Portal magazine next year and reading the upcoming issue for inspiration!
