thanks to everyone who has already sent me work. i’m still looking for more. if you’ve already sent me stuff, no need to send more, but for others who are hemming & hawing, here’s the call again. please help make this year’s NationalPoetryMonth.ca fun & compelling.
the call again:
send eccentric poesy for NationalPoetryMonth.ca – deadline February 28, 2016
I invite you to send me poems, for consideration for the April 2016 issue of NationalPoetryMonth.ca. This year I’ve opted for a free-for-all approach. Send whatever you like. Let’s see what sticks to the internet.
The DEADLINE is February 28, 2016.
Send poems to Amanda at angelhousepress dot com
Republished work is fine as long as you hold the copyright.
Please include a current bio in third or first person & photo. If you’d rather not share a photo of yourself, that’s ok too.
Please share this call with others. Participants can be from anywhere in the world. As always,AngelHousePress focuses on ragged edges, raw talent & rebellion. All ethnicities, all genders, all sexual orientations, all body types welcomed & encouraged. If you have questions, send them my way.
I started NationalPoetryMonth.ca in 2009 as an alternative to institutionalized celebrations of poetry with the goal of expanding preconceived notions of what poetry is or means. My favourite response to the poetry on NationalPoetryMonth.ca is “this isn’t poetry!”
The submissions I receive also help me determine what goes in to Experiment-O, an annual pdf magazine published in November. Like NPM & everything we do at AngelHouse, Experiment-O celebrates the art of risk.
I humbly apologize for not being able to offer funding. AngelHousePress is an independent two-person run micropress that operates without government funding in order that we can be free from the dictates of bureaucracy. But I do promise to promote the fuck out of contributors’ work & share it eagerly.
Thank you to all who have submitted work for NationalPoetryMonth.ca. Please join me in celebrating its seventh year in 2016.
