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.”
