Art may take any form, given it can be displayed digitally. We do consider film and photographed sculpture to fit this category.




We are open to writers and artists of all backgrounds. Tell us your story, enchant us, surprise us, and make us think. Feel free to bend the rules of your genre or create a new medium for your art. If you have a piece that you struggle to find a place for elsewhere, it might be the perfect fit for Orris Root.
