From the Summer Issue of 3rd Wednesday
“To the Domain” is a black and white photo by Fabrice Poussin. It’s one of 10 pieces of visual art in the Spring issue of 3rd Wednesday Magazine due out next week.
A watercolor by one of 3rd Wednesday’s favorite artists graces the cover of the Winter Issue.
From the Winter issue of 3rd Wednesday Magazine: John Loree, a frequent contributor to 3W, passed away recently. His artwork is also featured on the cover of this issue. We’re currently open to no-fee submissions for our Spring issue.
Digital editions of 3rd Wednesday Magazine are now free to everyone! Visit our website to download Volumes XI and XII.
We’re excited to show you this preview of the cover art for our fall issue due out at the end of September. The cover painting, “Poet Under Pine Tree”, is by Hedy Habra of Kalamazoo, Michigan. A true renaissance woman, Hedy’s poetry has also appeared in our magazine.
Instagram Poetry has elements derivative of classical Japanese Haiga, the difference being the poor quality of both the poems and the artwork. There is a similar phenomenon happening in music with electronically created “beats” replacing skillfully played instruments, and simplistic repetitive lyrics. My theory is that there is a yearning to create without the price of years spent developing craft and a medium (the internet) to spread it. Anyone can do it.
