The Dark Mountain Project

You have until 30 November 2015 to submit up to five poems for the spring issue of The Dark Mountain Project.

Copied from The DMP website: “The Dark Mountain Project is a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself. We see that the world is entering an age of ecological collapse, material contraction and social and political unravelling, and we want our cultural responses to reflect this reality rather than denying it.”

Poems for Rebelling Against Spelling Press

Copied from the website: ‘Rebelling Against Spelling Press (RASP) was founded in 2007 to make books by dyslexics rather than about them.
‘We are looking for poetry that deals with the theme of mistakes, error […] call them what you will. We want poems that tell a story about how something which went wrong turned out for the best. It doesn’t have to be true, or about you, it just has to say something about how a big bad mistake came out great. Poems should be no longer than 1000 words. If you would like to submit something for this publication please send it to us as PDF attachments. Do not paste them into the message field. With “Submission: The best mistake I ever made” written in the subject field. Deadline for submissions is March 2015.’ http://r-a-s-p.co.uk/submissions/
