The Day After the Election Anthology - call for poetry

Richard Vargas (American Jesus, Tia Chucha Press) and Rafael Alvarado (internet radio producer/host of the Moe Green Poetry Hour) are co-editing a poetry anthology to be titled The Day After: Poets Respond to the 2008 Presidential Election.

They are open to submissions. Says Vargas: “Please limit length to 2 page max per poem. We’re getting a lot of emotional expressions of joy, and a lot of rants. A lot of the stuff comes off more like a history lesson than a poem. If it’s warm and fuzzy, it better be really good. What we really want are those slice of life moments that capture the mood… surprise us with the unexpected and still address the theme of the anthology.”

No limit on number of poems submitted, but no poem should be over two pages in length. E-mail submissions: rvargas5 at yahoo dot com. Paste poems into the body of your email; files and attachments will not be opened.
