Deadline: June 30, 2011

PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT YOU: AN ANTHOLOGY OF NEW GAY AND LESBIAN POETRY

Edited by Shane Allison to be published in Fall 2011.

I am looking for poems that celebrate and question, meditate and intimate, argue and reconcile contemporary queer identity. Whether you write about coming out, sexuality, politics, growing up gay, civil rights, discrimination, love and relationships, same-sex marriages, erotica or serving in the military, I want to read about it and share it with others who want to read it as well.

I want everything from performance poetry to the academic, from traditional forms to the experimental.

I am open either to unpublished work, or work that was published since 2000 (this would include work originally published in a magazine or anthology before 2000, which was later collected in a book published after 2000).

I welcome queer voices from outside the US. This anthology is open to previously published work, but it is the poet’s responsibility to secure permission to reprint the poem.

Submit 5 to 10 of your best poems so long as queer content is relevant.

Submission instructions:

1. Title file with the initials of the anthology and author’s last name.
2. Include your name, your mailing address, your email address, and a bio.
3. Submit your work by email, as an attachment in rtf format, to newqueerpoetry@gmail.com
4. IF POEMS HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN PUBLISHED, PLEASE INCLUDE IN YOUR DOCUMENT WHERE AND WHEN AND MAKE SURE YOU HOLD THE RIGHTS TO YOUR WORK.

Deadline: June 30, 2011.
Payment will be two copies of the anthology per contributor.
