It's only fitting that this issue's Art-Inspired Contest features the work of Jennifer Weigel.  Our Summer 2022 publication is a collection of our "All Stars" -- the writers, poets, artists that have made a considerable impact on The Parliament Literary Journal since our inception two years ago.  And Jennifer is, indeed, an all-star, published in our debut issue.

You know the drill by now. We're not going to give details, including the title of the piece. We don't want to bias your interpretation of this piece in any way.  We just want you to GET INSPIRED.  Write us a story. Craft us a poem. 500 words or less. What story, what emotion, what character(s) does this evoke for you? Artist's and Editor's Winners will be published in our Summer 2022 issue. See the artwork in detail at
