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.
We’re pretty stoked that the Seven Kitchens Giving MonthJune fundraising drive has generated such a great response–we’re three-quarters to our ISBN Fund Goal and it’s not even June yet! Thanks so much for your support.
Finally, look for an announcement soon about our very new, and very queer, anthology series, co-edited by Terry Kirts. This project has been years in the planning, and we’re so excited to launch it this summer!
