Seven Kitchens Press seeks poems for its new Homage Series, anthologies celebrating the works of significant 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 preferably 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 email@example.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.
The reading period for the Cavafy edition closed on January 15. Please check back for further announcements in this series.
