Call for Submissions – BARED Anthology on bras/breasts – DEADLINE Sept. 18, 2015

Forthcoming from Les Femmes Folles Books, Bared collects art and poetry on bras and breasts by women writers and women artists. Poets and artists bare their best breasts clad in bras, bare-chested, or both to boast their barbaric yawps in poems, in paint, in pictures, and art. Bared features artful couplings and dynamic duos, and is double trouble, double the fun, and sometimes in double Ds.

Poetry Submission
New, unpublished poetry is preferred. Submit 3-5 unpublished poems along with a 50-100 word bio in the body of the email or as a doc to <lesfemmesfollesbooks(at)gmail.com> (replace (at) with @ in sending e-mail) with “Bared Submission” in the subject line. This is the preferred submission.  Please also include in your submission a list of your favorite poems and art about bras and breasts by women.

Or: The anthology will accept previously published poems, as long as the author retains the rights to the work or that it can be reprinted at no cost other than acknowledgement to the original source. For this submission, please also include the following: 1) the title of your poem; 2) the name of the book, journal, or anthology where it originally appeared; 3) the name of the press or journal who published it; 4) the year or issue it was published. Please double check to make sure that you as the author retain the rights to this poem(s) or that it can be reprinted at no cost other than acknowledgement to the original source.

Art Submission

    Can you narow your facebook info? I’m a poet but got deluged today with dozens, I;d say, of offers, mags, news, etc. which takes a long time to delete on my end. I really don’t want to receive any of these mailings any more.

    • Hi Robert, I’m not sure I understand what has happened. My blog sends out a single email when I post a blog post, which I only do once a day. I do share the post in some specific poetry groups on Facebook, but those should not generate emails unless you have your Facebook settings set to send you an email for every update on Facebook? I’m happy to help if you can provide some more information. Thanks!
