~*~W_O_M_B~*~, a new, online journal of poetry by women, seeks submissions for a summer mini-issue, scheduled to launch in August 2007.
~*~W_O_M_B~*~ is intended to showcase the innovative and intriguing and electrifying work of contemporary poets who self-identify as women. We also hope to provide links to resources that are of particular interest to women poets, and to build a comprehensive blogroll of women poets who blog. If you'd like to suggest a link, please e-mail femme feral at gmail dot com. We believe this will be a vital contribution to the exciting world of online poetry journals and to the community of poets who blog.
*WOMB publishes the work of people who self-identify as a woman
*Please send 3-6 poems as inline text (in the body of an e-mail) or as .doc or .rtf or .pdf attachment.
*We also welcome submissions of audio, visual, tactile, and collage poetry. To submit poetry of this nature, please attach a sound file or jpeg/pdf image of your work. If the work is hosted online, you can also just send us a link. If you think the file is too large to send via e-mail, please contact us to obtain a snail mail address.
*If you are interested in submitting hypertext or video poetry or poetry that requires a flash player, please send a file that is viewable using quicktime or real player. Again, if you think your file is too large to send via e-mail, please contact us to obtain a snail mail address.
*Collaborations and translations are also welcome.
*If you are interested in submitting something that does not fit into any of the above descriptions, that's fine. Just help us out by providing us with a brief description of the piece.
*Please query if you are interested in doing a book review. We can't offer review copies at the moment, but we would love to hear from you if you would like to share your thoughts about a book.
* Send all submissions to wombpoetry at gmail dot com
NUTS AND BOLTS:
* We are open for submissions from July 1, 2007 to July 30, 2007. Issue 1.5 will launch in late August 2007.
*Please put your name and date in the subject line of your e-mail. Please also include a cover letter with a brief bio so that we can get to know you a little bit.
*Simultaneous submissions are allowed, just let as know asap if a piece has been accepted elsewhere.
*Please note that we do not consider previously published work (however we are willing to consider work that has been posted to a personal blog; if this is the case, please make a note in your cover letter).
