Call for Submissions: Anthology of Queer Chicano Poetry

Recognizing the critical need for Queer Chicano men to document their stories, break bread with one another and create artifacts for generations to come, this fall Kórima Press will be releasing its first anthology: joto (ho-toh) v.

Embodying a complex and ever-evolving identity, Queer Chicanos hold stories that emanate from the intersections that permeate, constitute and surround our bodies. This anthology seeks to live as a codex of such stories.

Kórima Press seeks poetry submissions from Queer Chicano men writing from and about the spaces of (un)documented desires, racialized nation-states, contested and reclaimed tongues, and overcrowded kitchen tables. Imagined as an amalgamation of Polaroid snapshots, all poetry written from, about, resisting and/or reacting to Queer Chicanismo are welcome. Submissions of any language and combination thereof are accepted.

Submission: Please e-mail with a single Word (.doc or .docx) or Rich Text Format (.rtf) attachment containing the following:

– Contact Information
– 150 – 300 word bio
– A high resolution photograph
– List of pieces submitted
– Up to 10 poems

Please be sure to write the following in the subject line of the email: “Joto Submission: YourLastName”

Deadline: September 30, 2010

Compensation: As a small press, Kórima is unable to provide monetary compensation for submissions. Contributors will receive 3 copies of the anthology and will be able to purchase additional copies at-cost.

NOTE: At-cost amount to be determined upon completion of publication as this is determined by the final dimensions of the anthology.

    I am interested in submitting some work but have a question: is the high-resolution photograph of our work or of ourselves? Please let me know of anything, thank you!
