What We're Looking For:
This contest seeks work that speaks to the mission of Danteâ€™s Heart.
Dante's Heart (www.dantesheart.com) is an online venue looking for creative
work that explores how myth and fairy tale define and are defined by the
human experience(s). We want to celebrate the shock, wonder, bewilderment,
suffering, and enchantment of myth, of the fantastic; we want to hear about
rivers running with wine and ghosts jumping the Mississippi on motorcycles.
We're concerned with the neglect of myth, with the blindness of a culture
determined by myths it hasn't thought about; we demand (beg, entreat,
scream) that myths be thought about, made and remade, handled with a
delicate & angry/sad/ desperate/joyous exuberance.
Submit poems by e-mail to editors_at_dantesheart.com.
