NEW! — CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS — AN ANTHOLOGY OF WORD SONNETS(proposed print edition)
*Posted August 15, 2007
for a new, comprehensive anthology of word sonnets.
The word sonnet is a relatively new variation of the traditional form.
In essence, it is a fourteen line poem, with one word set for each line.
Concise and usually visual in effect, this "miniature" version can contain
one or more sentences, as the articulation requires.
Only word sonnets submitted electronically will be considered.
Please send up to 25 unpublished and/or previously published word sonnets
to the editors for consideration:
Please include the words "Word Sonnet Anthology" in the Subject line of the e-mail
and a short, one paragraph bio-bibliographical note.
We look forward to reading your submissions,
Seymour Mayne and Christal Steck
Editors, An Anthology of Word Sonnets
and be sure to take a look at the electronic collection of word sonnets
released on the following web site:
