Here’s another poetry submission opening for y’all. Issue 42 of Cordite Poetry Review is going to have no theme. That’s right – so whatever your crazy sestinas, imagist haikus or iambic verse is about, you can go right ahead and send it off.
I get so excited about non-themed issues of magazines and journals because I find it difficult to come up with ideas, even at the best of times.
Cordite, now in their 15th year of publishing emerging and established poets, have had one previous No Theme issue, but are planning to make it an annual thing.
For No Theme II they’ve got the great Gig Ryan on board as guest editor, so there’s no doubt it’s gonna be a real kicker.
The cut-off date for submissions is February 14 2013. You can send a maximum of 3 unpublished poems, and they pay all their contributors ($60 for a single poem – not a bad day’s work if you ask me, especially since entry is free). Check out the submission details for more info.
So go on, make a poem and pull it’s trigger; smell that cordite.
