Open Call for Poetry

My collaborator Angela Burdon and I are editing a poetry anthology which will be published by Lungs Project in Autumn 2019. This open call is aimed at poets of colour who identify as cis women, trans women, and non-binary. This anthology seeks to explore poetry as a space for womxn from systemically oppressed backgrounds to cultivate and exercise resistance. The framework of the anthology will navigate the intersections of poetic resistance as a source of empowerment, as activism, and ultimately as an act of transgression.

Deadline is 1 July 2019, midnight EST.
