Visual Verse is an online anthology of art and words. Every month we publish a new image by a contemporary artist for writers to respond to. The pieces must be 50-500 words and written within one hour.


We are proud to publish contributions from writers of all ages and all backgrounds, from all over the world.




Founded and edited by Preti Taneja and Kristen Harrison of The Curved House.

Designed by Mr Pete Lewis.
