Study #1 by Jeremy Postaer

Enter now: The Rogue’s Gallery

Many years ago I wanted to create an anthology of poetry and prose for copywriters by copywriters. I was going to call it the “Copywriter’s Book.” I knew my peers were working on projects other than advertising. I also knew how hard it was getting work published. I figured a “copywriter’s anthology” would give us all a place to go.

As originally conceived, I needed a publisher in order to move forward: someone to produce the book in which our poems and stories would appear. Although there was an interested party it never happened. Understandably, few wanted to underwrite such a risky venture.

Much has changed in ten years. The Internet presents new opportunity for an anthology or gallery. The blog format is a perfect host.

What hasn’t changed is my belief that creative people would get a kick out of seeing stuff from their peers as well as contributing, be it prose, poetry, painting, photography or mixed media. I know I would.

Which is why I’m launching The Rogue’s Gallery. I have a template I like. Now all it needs is…you! The Rogue’s Gallery needs your paintings, poetry, fiction or a scene from your screenplay. If it means something to you it, it’ll mean something to us. Don’t be shy!

Who knows? Maybe a publisher will fall in love with your prose or your oils will smite a patron of the arts. Life is full of surprises. Besides, what’s the worst that can happen: a few peers see your work? I think that’s pretty cool.

The Rogue’s Gallery is not meant to be a beauty contest. Nor is it a commercial gallery. The Rogue’s Gallery is a place where creative advertising people can show their work and appreciate the work of their peers.

Like all art, The Rogue’s Gallery is a labor of love. But it’s nothing without you. Please submit. Visit The Rogue’s Gallery. Read its few rules and guideline. Then send in your work.

Welcome to The Rogue’s Gallery.
