Hi All!

Melanie here.  Just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who have been sending in submissions.  As you may have noticed I haven’t responded to you or posted anything new for a couple weeks… I’ve been a bit under the weather and have completely neglected  Artists4Peace and my own blog.

Sorry about that BUT I promise I will be reviewing and posting submissions over the next few days.  In fact I will probably spread them out and post a few each day 🙂

Thank you for your continued support and for your understanding! AND keep the submissions coming!!!

🙂

Melanie

Important Announcement

cropped-a4p_logo1_michelle

Dear Artist4Peace members, contributors and followers:

We (Melanie & Gigi), have been wondering if there is enough interest in the Artists4Peace blog to keep it going. We really appreciate those of you who do participate and contribute your work.  We have shared some really wonderful and powerful messages here.

AND, the fact of the matter is, the number of submissions for the monthly topics and in general continue to drop and the number of people reading the posts are dwindling as well.

We’ve discussed shutting it down BUT really hope that there is a renewed interest and that you all will contribute and help spread the word i.e., encourage others you come across to get involved.

For now we are discontinuing the monthly topics (we can always revisit this in the future if you all want them).  We will still be accepting general submissions as long as they promote peace in some way.

Send in any Peace related art (art, poetry, essays, music, etc) at any time for consideration to be posted throughout the month. Remember just blog as you normally would and then email a link to your post to artists4peaceproject@gmail.com for consideration!

🙂

Gigi and Melanie
