Call-out for Anthology Submissions from Women Poets

Thanks to fellow poet Alex Toms for putting me on to this one.

Breaking my no-fee rule here, but the charge is tiny (£1 for one poem/£2 for up to three poems). All profits go to ‘Rape Crisis’ charity. Deadline: 30th March. Theme: ‘Furies’.

Copied and pasted from their site (http://forbookssake.net/furies-poetry-anthology/):

Furies will be published in Autumn 2014, and will showcase established and emerging women writers from across the globe. So, for a chance to be featured, wet your nibs with spite and find your muse among the infernal goddesses of justice and revenge.

We interpret Furies in the widest possible sense, and your hellcat heroines may be modern, mythic, animal or cyborg, women from film, fiction, history, music, art and activism, or rebels in their own home.

Whether you’re penning a tribute to Pussy Riot, a sonnet about suffragettes, a love letter to women warriors from fairytale or folklore, or something else entirely, we can’t wait to read your writing.

Poets should submit a maximum of three poems, each no longer than 40 lines. The deadline for submissions is midnight on Sunday 30th March 2014. The very best will be featured in our Furies poetry anthology.

All profits from Furies will be donated to Rape Crisis, an independent, registered charity providing essential support to survivors of rape and sexual violence.

To submit a poem, writers are requested to make a donation of £1 per poem or £2 for three poems. If for any reason your financial circumstances make this difficult, please send us an email.
