You are invited to submit poems to Desde Hong Kong: poets in conversation with Octavio Paz, a collection in celebration of the centenary of the great Mexican poet, Octavio Paz, who built bridges among cultures, and especially among poets, and whose connections with Asia were considerable.

The editors have selected eight works by Paz to initiate and stimulate the conversation or to act as references. These poems can be found here: http://chameleonpress.com/octaviopaz/

As the title Desde Hong Kong suggests, the editors expect the poems to be rooted in some way in, from or about Hong Kong. The book will be published by Chameleon Press and edited by Germán Muñoz, Juan José Morales and Tammy Ho Lai-Ming. You can find out more about them here: http://chameleonpress.com/octaviopaz/dtls.html?show=bios

Unless you are invited to submit work personally by one of the editors, general submissions should be made by 31 July, 2014 via Google Docs and sent to octaviopazhk@gmail.com. More information: http://chameleonpress.com/octaviopaz/
