Adanna Literary Journal:   Food Issue

Do you have poems in your body of work that center around women growing, harvesting, or preparing food?  Women sharing food?  Women across cultures and continents and generations who are celebrating food?   Or longing for food for themselves and their loved ones? Poems that explore the tragic lack of food or a woman’s struggles to obtain it…or avoid it.  Poems of women who earn a wage making, serving, farming, packaging, promoting food. 


Editors, Lynne McEniry, Diane Lockward, and Founder Christine Redman-Waldeyer are seeking poets to send us their Women and Food poems for an issue of Adanna to be published during April 2014.  While Adanna is a journal aimed at women it welcomes submissions by men.
