Atelier of Healing: Poetry About Trauma and Recovery
Deadline October 2 (must be received by this date). Poets Desmond Kon Zhicheng-Mingdé and Eric Tinsay Valles seek submissions of poetry about trauma and recovery for their forthcoming anthology Atelier of Healing, to be published in 2021. "What kind of personal suffering have you endured and weathered? If one were to navigate such trauma, what are some of the coping mechanisms? How, then, will you render your personal experience into lyric and narrative, to transform the pain into something of profound beauty?" Send 1-3 poems as an MS Word attachment with a short bio of 70 words maximum by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. See formatting requirements on the guidelines page. Unpublished work is preferred, but reprints are accepted if you own the rights.
