Palaver seeks submissions that defy the confines of a single discipline and explore the multiple disciplinary influences that the subject necessitates.  We publish creative and academic work that values the nonrestrictive and looks beyond the paradigms of the discipline to converge versatility, skill, and ingenuity in the service of its subject. Palaver is a venue for this innovative work, promoting the visionary talents of contributors across an array of interests. If you should have any queries or need clarifications, please email<>.

GWBJCall for Artists

The Greater Wilmington Business Journal’s Book on Business is an annual publication showcasing the region as a center of business.  The Book of Business will feature original paintings and drawings created by local artists that reflect area landmarks, events, communities or landscapes.  Artists chosen to appear in the publication will be invited to attend the launch party in January to showcase the art that appears in the Book of Business and to network with our business community.  The artists’ headshot and contact information will be included in the publication, and they will also receive a complimentary copy of the 2015 Book of Business.  

Artists can provide up to three (3) entries.  Photography will not be accepted, but photo illustration or collage will be considered.  The Book is tabloid format, so vertical art is preferred.  One piece will be used on the cover; all other selections will appear throughout the publication.  The artist who creates the chosen cover piece will also receive $250 and a 1/2 page ad in the book.

To submit:  Please send an electronic copy of the original art in JPEG, TIFF, or PDF format.  Files should be less than 9M.  If your artwork is selected, they will ask for a larger, high-resolution version.
