CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Women in Paintings Edition
Adanna is seeking ekphrastic poetry that examines, reflects, or celebrates “Women in Paintings.” We are looking for poems where women are the subject of a painting. The artist may be male or female and poems should expand (go beyond) the visual description of the painting to create a unique point of view about the subject. Guest editors include award winning poets Laura Freedgood and Lynne McEniry.
Past special topic issues have included, How Women Grieve, Women and War, Women and Food, and our forthcoming edition on Women and Spirituality. Submission period is Aug. 23 – Dec 15. There is a $10 reading fee payable through check or Paypal. Please include your transaction ID # or check # in your cover letter. Poets may submit up to a total of 6 unpublished poems. Please notify us as soon as possible of any accepted work. If paying by check, please send to P.O. Box 547, Manasquan, NJ 08735 and note the date of submission and include titles of poems submitted. Checks should be made out to Adanna. Please e-mail your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org in a single file word document with a short bio of three to four lines.
