Matteo Pericoli’s drawing of the view from Lidija Dimkovska’s window in Skopje, Macedonia.
For the past few years, readers of the Daily have enjoyed an occasional series called “Windows on the World,” featuring Matteo Pericoli’s intricate pen-and-ink drawings of the views from writers’ windows around the world. Now those drawings are available in a book—Windows on the World: Fifty Writers, Fifty Views—and we’re celebrating with a contest. You can have your view illustrated by Pericoli, too.
Starting today, submit a photograph of the view through your window—including the window frame—along with three hundred words about what you see, to [email protected]. Submissions will be judged by the editors of The Paris Review and Penguin Press, and by Matteo Pericoli. The winner will receive Pericoli’s original sketch and have his or her essay published on the Paris Review Daily. Five finalists will receive signed copies of Windows on the World.
For all the details, click here, and then get cracking: we’re only accepting submissions until November 15.
