The Monetization of Art and Poetry
Poets and Artists quite often struggle with selling their creations; whereas art dealers and fast talking money merchants are great at selling but often devoid of talent that hasn't been pilfered. Visualize a world in a story or essay that breaches this divide, and allows the cunning salesman and the bleeding heart artist who lives with integrity to coexist. I will read all entries and a winner will be chosen according by who can speak best between the lines.
