Harpur Palate welcomes cover art submissions.  We don't have a particular style, but we encourage you to study earlier issues for a sense of size and space considerations.

 All material must be original to the submitter.  All submissions will be kept on file for future consideration.  It is the responsibility of the artist to withdraw the submission if it is no longer available.  

Submit up to two images as .pdf or .jpg files.  If your work is chosen, you will receive two contributor's copies of the issue.
