Poetry (any form or style) wanted for an anthology of BUGS
From Roxanne Hoffman of Poets Wear Prada:
(any form or style) wanted for an anthology on BUGS. Take them out of
the box: those noisy pests upstairs who keep renovating their apartment
or constantly turn up the TV volume; the ones whose bites transmit
diseases and sometimes kill; the bugs who break into our computers,
robbing us of everything and bringing down the works; the “Big Brother”
bugs our government send out to spy on us; the sci fi ants the
pesticides got rid of who returned as giants and the ones antibiotics
kill who come back stronger than ever; the thousands of pests who
plague us every day in the form of tele-marketers, loud-mouthed cell
phone users, to dire warnings buzzing in our ears about the danger of
everything. Get the idea? Release them all onto the page.
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 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.
