Submission Call-Autumn Sky Poetry, Number 15, October 2009

—————–
For the first time ever, Autumn Sky Poetry will be publishing artwork as well as poems. If you are a poet who also dabbles in any of the visual arts, send me your work. I’m looking for poems with corresponding artwork:
—Do you have a poem about a barn? Send me the poem and the photo that you took that inspired the poem.
—Do you like to draw abstract shapes? Send me the poem you wrote and the doodle that you drew in the margin.
—Do you paint? Send me the painting and the poem you wrote about it.
—Did your sister or your son draw something after reading your poem? Send them in together.
—Alternatively, you may submit ekphrastic poems with a corresponding link to the art that inspired the poem. I won’t publish the art, but I will include the link with the poem.
—————–
Send submissions to: autumnskypoetryeditor@gmail.com
Send up to four poems within the body of the email. I only read the first four poems.
Attach the artwork as a .jpg. I will only accept four graphic attachments per submission.
To submit to this particular issue, make sure you include the words: “Submission Number 15” in the subject line of your email. All other email with attachments will be discarded unopened.

so, what am I talking about

on Autumn Sky Poetry — the blog? Here are some of my latest posts:

what about bios?

“No one has asked me this question, but I find myself thinking about it nonetheless: do I read the bios before I read the poems?”

why only four poems per submission?

“Why so few? The answer: four poems is just enough for me to get a sense of the voice of the poet.”

reading submissions

“Since I’m so short on time, I’ve found that while reading, if a poem does not grab me within the first three to five lines, it’s probably not going to grab me later on in the poem.”

Autumn Sky Poetry — the blog

I just started a new blog as a companion to my Autumn Sky Poetry journal. I don’t know how often I’ll update it; I’m hoping to post about the perils and pleasures of editing a poetry journal. I will also probably post some information pertaining to where I am in the submission/acceptance process for the journal.
