more than words is...
a photo essay (because a picture paints 1000 words...)
A photo essay is a set or series of photographs that tell a story. Care is given to their order and presentation so they work together to stir emotions in the viewer. Photos may or may not have accompanying captions and they may or may not include an accompanying literary essay - this is up to the discretion of the editor and artist.
If your collection is published we may choose to use one of the images as our cover. You are welcome to make suggestions in this regard but it is ultimately up to the Blank Spaces editor. By Submitting your work to Blank Spaces you are submitting to the discretion of the editor.
