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.

Rane Arroyo reading period extended through 10/31

Due to a significant number of queries regarding the changed deadline (changed from last year), we’re happy to extend the reading period for the annual Rane Arroyo Chapbook Prize: we will continue accepting submissions through October 31. Please note that work will be considered this year only from writers without previous book or chapbook publication. We use a blind-submission process; editors Ron Mohring and Eduardo C. Corral will read every manuscript received and are looking forward to seeing your work! Full guidelines here.
