About After...

Not all artworks can claim to be wholly original: conceived of without reference to any other work of art. A great many are the result of inspiration taken from someone else’s art.


Such art, termed ekphrastic, draws from, describes, commentates on, branches off of, enters into dialogue with, illuminates or acknowledges another’s workThis is what you’ll find in After...

Each new and full moon brings an original poem that takes its cues, overtly or subtly, from some other work of art. These poems come with notes on their inspiration, written by their authors.

After... was created (and is curated) by poet and publisher Mark Antony Owen, and intended as a sister journal to his popular poetry quarterly, iamb.
