Poetry & Place Anthology – Official Release & Launch Week

Poetry and Place Anthology 2015 400x625

It gives us great pleasure to announce the official release of the 2015 Poetry & Place Anthology!

Print and eBook editions are now available through major online retailers and can also be ordered through bookstores. Below, you’ll find a range of purchase links and we hope you’ll be able to support us and the poets within – even sharing this post helps spread the word about the anthology.

Unlike our previous journals, Egg[Poetry] and holland1945, this anthology was always going to be a longer project, both in terms of page count and terms of release schedule. But we believe the collection is stronger for the extra care and time spent.

We’re pleased to say that over the last year and a bit, we and the anthology have survived poor health, local postage price-hikes and distribution delays among all the other minor hiccups any journal faces and we’re beaming on the other side.

Stay tuned to our blogs for launch week, spanning Monday the 2nd – Friday the 6th of May, where we’ll be featuring spoken word recordings from the poets themselves for each of the five days!

Thanks again to everyone who helped us from start to finish! ‘Place’ is such an evocative theme; one that thrills us still and one we hope will enthrall you too when you read the poems we were lucky enough to be sent.

Future Haiku Collection

I’m hoping to prepare another haiku collection for release toward the end of the year, I just have to submit it to my publisher and see what they think. So far, it’s shaping up well but I need to spend a fair bit more time on it as I’m trying to add a more…gendai like section.

I’ll be sharing bits and pieces from the as-yet unnamed collection and seeking input from everyone on the cover, as in the past, so hope you can stick around to have a look 🙂

Pigeonholes & Zetetic – Submissions Open

Pidgeonholes-Wide

I wanted to mention two online publications poets & fiction writers should check out Pigeonholes and Zetetic: A Record of Unusual Inquiry.

Both are currently open for subs and you can visit the guidelines via the links above.zetetic

What I love about Zetetic is that they’re looking for unsual work so if you’ve got a piece that just hasn’t quite found a home in other journals, this might be the venue for you. And with Pigeonholes I was pretty thrilled to see this under a special call for subs:

SPECIAL CALL: 90s Mixtape
The end of September will mark the end of our third quarter, and we want to do something special. So, get out your old cassettes and scratched CDs, get nostalgic, and write us some fiction inspired by the bands and songs of the 90s. No literal interpretations of songs – we don’t want an angst-filled tale of woe for a song like “Motorcycle Drive By”, but a story about a steampunk cycle gang that guns down the wrong mark would catch our attention. Be creative. Use a favorite line, song title, or band name. A man who is blind in one of his three eyes, a champagne supernova setting, a tale about irony that isn’t ironic, flash about teen spirit. Don’t be afraid to get speculative! In addition to following our standard Fiction Guidelines below, submissions should include a brief explanation about what inspired the piece. This call is for fiction only, and only has enough room for 10 to 12 “tracks”, so make sure you send your best. Above all, entertain us.

So dig up memories of the 90s and see what you can do!
