Call for submissions:

I am collecting an anthology of poems and more that celebrate Sylvia Plath's life and work, but do not fetishize her suicide and death. Please submit your poems about Sylvia Plath for an anthology to come out in Fall of 2011. All poems must be either a response to her work, or her life, with one caveat -- they cannot be about death or suicide. Work will be looked at more favorably if it responds to, for example, The Bee Poems, rather than "Daddy" or "Lady Lazarus". The book will be published through Fat Gold Watch Press. Authors will get reduced price copies.

Please send three to five poems as either an rtf or doc attachment. I cannot accept docx. For the subject heading, please write, Sylvia poems, your name. For the cover letter, please include a short bio -- 150 words or less, and describe how your poems are a response to her work or life. If there's a particular poem you are responding to, please tell me its name. Submissions are due July 15, 2010, and you should hear back by September 15. I am also considering essays, shorter than ten pages (double spaced), and black and white artwork.

The anthology will not be published if there is an insufficient amount of submissions.

Send submissions to: ceehamm@gmail.com.

Thank you, guys -- your support is really encouraging.

This sounds like a brilliant anthology!

Ivy said...

Christine, is previously published okay (rights reverted to author, of course) or would you prefer brand-spanking-new?

And agree with the others: great idea for an anthology!

Christine said...

Yes, Ivy, I will accept reprints and repubs.

Thius is a great idea! I hope you are still accepting submissions; I have a few pieces I think might fit.
