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.
The reading period for the Cavafy edition closed on January 15 and we are currently reading through all the submissions. Please check back for announcements of further projects in this series.
