Veils, Halos and Shackles : International Poetry on the Abuse and Oppression of Women
For Veils, Halos and Shackles, an anthology of international poetry that will respond to the horrifying incidence of rape and other forms of violence and oppression directed at women in our time, Smita Sahay & Charles Fishman are seeking published and unpublished poems in English, or English translation, that center on any aspect of this issue.
Please send 1-3 poems (up to 10 total pages), to both editors, in a single Word attachment, along with a short bio of approximately 100 words and a paragraph or two regarding your reasons for addressing this subject in your poem(s). Deadline for submissions: June 15, 2013.
Update about deadline: The anthology is currently under consideration by several publishers, and the final deadline for submissions will be determined by the contract Charles Fishman and I ultimately sign. For further information, please see our call for submissions at www.charlesfishman.com.
Please help by putting us in touch with other poets who may wish to contribute to this anthology & by re-posting this announcement on websites that provide current information about poetry, women’s lives, & other topics pertinent to this project.
