PWP Announces 2009/2010 Anthology Topic: SMOKE

2009/2010 Anthology Topic: SMOKE

March 4, 2009

Poetry (any form or style) wanted for an anthology on SMOKE. Not just the black clouds rising from the five-alarm fire next door, or the billowing plumes of smoke warning us of a forest fire, or the emmissions from factory smoke stacks, apartment house incinerators, and crematoriums, smoke rings rise from cigarettes, smoke pours out of headshops, pipe shops & cigar stores--see that purple haze rising over the fields of poppies and marijuana we just planted--we've used it to communicate via smoke signals and skywriting, to cover our tracks and disappear with and without mirrors, combat the enemy on and off the battlefield, kill bugs, flavor food, cure illness, declare peace treaties, and fragrance our homes. Got the idea? Release it onto the page.

Guidelines: Submit up to three poems with a fascinating bio of 35 words or less, not just limited to publication credits, copy/pasted in the body of an e-mail (no attachments, please) to roxy533 at yahoo dot com & . Previously published work is ok, as long as authors have retained the copyright, which will be returned to them after publication. Response time will be about three to six months; the expected date of publication is 1-2 years away. Please don’t query. When in doubt, send the submission to roxy533 at yahoo dot com &

Deadline: October 31, 2009.
