Special Call for Cover Art Submissions

Yates County was founded two hundred years ago, in 1823. To both celebrate and commemorate the bicentennial, we will be producing a special edition of Bluff & Vine this summer. That’s where you come in: We need an amazing cover for this one-of-a-kind issue!

Visit the bicentennial page on the county website and the county historian’s Facebook page for inspiration, and then submit your artwork to us. We accept all kinds of art, from photography and fiber arts to painting and collage. What says “Yates County” to you? Show us! Submissions will be accepted until April 15, 2023.

Be sure your submission follows these guidelines:

  • The layout of our covers means that we have an unusual size for art: 4.5 inches wide, 9 inches tall. Please consider these dimensions when submitting!
  • Art submissions must have some kind of connection to Yates County.
  • Art submissions are accepted through email only, at bluffandvine@gmail.com.

We encourage you to include a short cover letter with your art submission. We’d love to know about you and your art, as well as a little about your connection to Yates County. If your work is selected to be on the cover of the bicentennial issue, we’ll also need a short bio of 50 words or less. Please include your name and contact information in your cover letter.

      Oh, thank goodness you reached us here! I wonder what’s going on with the email. And we can certainly use an old bio. When you get a moment, please try emailing us at keukawrites@gmail.com to see if that works. Thrilled to have you in Issue Seven!
