Woven Tale Press Announces Second Annual Hamptons Artist and Writer Competitions
Thursday, July 12, 2018

Mission-driven contest dedicated to promoting notable artists and writers opens July 15

NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Woven Tale Press, an online publication dedicated to showcasing noteworthy artists and writers, is holding its second annual competitions July 15 - Sept 15. This distinguished online contest is in memoriam to artist Elizabeth Sloan Tyler - the mother of Sandra Tyler - editor-in-chief of The Woven Tale Press - to honor literary and artistic talents deserving of greater recognition. First place in each category is a one-week retreat in Elizabeth's former home in the Hamptons, NY.

"It means a great deal to me to repurpose my mother's home as a retreat for artists, writers and poets to create and refine their own works," says Sandra Tyler. Elizabeth Sloan Tyler was a prolific artist who painted in the obscurity of her cellar in the early part of her life. "The only light was a reflective one from her canvas. That's how I remember her paintings - quite literally luminous in an otherwise dark space," adds Ms. Tyler. "My mother's years of painting in that cellar serve as an apt metaphor for WTP - to bring to light the creative soul persevering in isolation."

Writers and visual artists alike praise WTP for its scope and mission. "The Woven Tale Press is a valuable media outlet source for an array of artists that cross a variety of mediums," artist John McCaw notes. "The eclectic mix of art combined with the aesthetic layout and the knowledgeable staff make Woven Tale Press a leader in an ever changing global art market." Writer Jaqueline Crooks states, "The Woven Tale Press features writers and artists from around the world who have something different to say. It is definitely where I want my stories to be placed--it means I'm going in the right direction."

The annual competition runs from July 15 - September 15. In addition to the First Prize retreat in the Hamptons, second and third place winners will be awarded cash. All winners will be published in The Woven Tale Press online magazine and featured in a spotlight on WTPCentral. Proceeds from the $25 entry fee go to supporting WTP editorial staff and expenses.
