[UPDATE] Deadline Extended for Poetry Anthology
Deadline Extended: May 15, 2010
The concept for the anthology was birthed out of a workshop exercise from poet Richard Jackson—who had students write a well-crafted poem from a list of words offered by the class. Since we believe writing exercises are often the start of new, innovative work, our anthology will be a collection of poems that use six words supplied by six of our "showcased" poets.
These six words are:
Each of these poets has not only submitted a word for this project, but he/she will also participate in this workshop exercise by contributing a poem.
There are no minimum or maximum length requirements for individual poems. We, however, have a three-poem limit for submissions. The only requirement is that you incorporate all six words into one poem. We are most interested in fresh and surprising poems that seamlessly integrate the list words.
Submissions will only be accepted via e-mail. Please e-mail submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15, 2010.
We look forward to reading your work!
