Our Annual Anthology (Vol. 4)
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Members of Parkland Poets, we are now accepting submissions for original photographs for the cover of our next anthology – and original unpublished poetry. (If you would like to submit, but are not a member, it isn’t too late to take out a 2020/21 membership).
This is a contest! The winning submission will receive a modest honorarium, and have their image featured on the front cover of the anthology.
Photographs must be portrait orientation, Resolution: 3000 x 3000 pixels at 300 dpi. Format: JPG or GIF. Will be printed on 4.25″w x 5.5″h. There should be no blurry or pixelated portions of your photo. The design needs to be simple enough to showcase the title. Must be your original work. (PPS may crop/modify the image for the cover, as part of its design process).
Deadline to submit is June 30.
Exciting news! This year we will be creating audio links to each poem that is included in the anthology, so that readers can listen along as they read your words. Those who submit to the anthology will receive further details and instructions shortly.
Poets are allowed to submit up to 3 poems for consideration. One poem will be chosen by the committee for publication. Poems that exceed the specifications will not be considered. Total line length must not exceed 65 characters including punctuation and spaces, and the poem must be no longer than 25 lines in length (including stanza breaks – but not including title).
A complete submission to the anthology must include:
- Poem (max 65 characters; max 25 lines)
- Bio (max 40 words)
