It so often happens that writers will think of an inspiring sentence that could stand alone, especially if it was illustrated. It also happens that artists and photographers create works that would be “complete” with a perfect caption or inspiring quote.

In honour of the happenstance- let’s goat down to the business:

“Matchbox Quips & Quotes”

Send us your original quotes, your doodles, your photos, your art. 
Funny, inspiring, motivating, spiritual, ah-ha’d you or just because…

You can send just a quote or a caption and we will match it to a piece of art


You can send a visual and we will match a quote/caption for it,


You can send a quote and visual

We will design/layout/typeset to best showcase the work. 
Please remember to include attribution to any images including your own.

360 days of Matchbox quips & quotes

We will publish daily for 360 days in the order that submissions are received and accepted- that’s a full circle right there.

You can participate once, every day, every few days, every week, every month — basically whenever you are inspired- send us the words and or the pictures.
