Seven Kitchens Press seeks poems for its new Homage Series, annual anthologies celebrating the works of great LGBTQ poets. Our inaugural volume will focus on the Alexandrian poet C. P. Cavafy, known for his frank, unapologetic erotics and intimate evocations of Alexandria’s Hellenic past.
Submissions are open to all LGBTQ poets writing in English.
Poems should not simply refer to the life and/or subject matter of the poet’s work but should evoke the style, language, voice, and aesthetic of the poet’s work as contributors interpret it.
Poets may submit up to 3 poems. Previously published poems considered. Submit all poems in a single Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx) in an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body of your message, please include a brief bio and a 2-3 sentence description of your approach to the chosen poet’s work.
Series editors: Terry Kirts and Ron Mohring.
Melissa Atkinson Mercer has a new chapbook, and we’re pretty stoked. Please join us in celebrating the release of After the Miracle Season, Number 7 in Volume Three of our Editor’s Series. Full details can be found here.
Keystone Chapbook Series editors Steve Bellin-Oka and Ron Mohring are delighted to announce the selection of two manuscripts: “Feed” by Emily Mohn-Slate, and “Bloodfish” by Jennifer Jackson Berry, both of Pittsburgh.

What better way to launch August than with five new chapbooks? Our hot, limited-edition Summer Kitchen Series drops today, with fresh titles by Jill McCabe Johnson, Alyse Bensel, Beverly Voigt, Scott Honeycutt, and Jacob Budenz. Please join us in welcoming these poets to Seven Kitchens Press.
We’ve been reading some terrific poems submitted for this year’s Keystone Chapbook Series. Just a reminder that we are still accepting manuscripts through July 15 (Sunday), so get off that fence if you’ve been thinking about sending your chapbook. No reading fee. Full guidelines here. Send your best work!
