Call for submissions: the Homage Series: Cavafy

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 homageserieseditor@gmail.com. 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.

Deadline: October 15, 2018.

June news & previews

We’re pretty stoked that the Seven Kitchens Giving Month June 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.

June also means that we’ll be reading manuscripts for the Keystone Chapbook Series, for poets with a Pennsylvania connection. This is the series that launched Seven Kitchens Press back in 2007 with Harry Humes’ Underground Singing. The newest title, Erin Murphy’s Remorse Code, is out now, and two more titles are scheduled to drop this summer: Deborah Burnham’s Among the Other Dead and William Varner’s Leaving Erebus. 

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!
